I have literally been snowed in here for most of the week. And being the craftaholic that I am, you would think I have lots to show you. Yes, I spent a large amount of time crafting and I have three projects currently in the works. But none of them are complete. Why, you ask? Well, I ran out of supplies for one project, another project is still being worked through in my head, so it is not coming together as quickly as I'd like, and the third one is totally kicking my butt. Here is a bit of my three projects combined:
A mess. But it will come together. You will see them all soon, and in the meantime, I'll share with you a project that I did last Valentines day.
Use a sifter of powdered sugar to dust the counter and scrape the candy out of the bowl onto the counter. Add lots of extra powdered sugar to the top and start to knead it like bread dough. Keep kneading and adding sugar if needed until the candy is satiny instead of sticky.
Then decide how many colors you want to make and divide the dough up into that many portions. Take each portion, add a few drops of food coloring and almond extract and knead it until the color is well distributed. (By the way, any flavored extract will work). For this step, use rubber gloves so that you don't end up with rainbow hands. Repeat this with the other portions until all your candy is colored and flavored.
Dust the counter again with powdered sugar and roll out one of the colors to about 1/4″ thick.
Please don't get me wrong, I am SO happy when you try them out, especially when you love them, cuz I think that is what recipes should be about- sharing, but I would just appreciate it if you care enough to not copy but link to my post so people can find the party and blog! Also, if the recipe is a guest feature, please link to the original author's blog post that is hyper linked at the top of the page!
