Easy Almond Roca!! Recipe Of The Day In Four Ingredients!!

Filed under: FoodRecipesMariko Amekodommo

Mariko Laugh

The melt-in-your-mouth goodness of toffee, in just a few steps! Try experimenting with different types of nuts and flavors (add chili, coconut and salt to your almonds for a spicy kick) and the possibilities are endless! Toffee tastes better the next day after the flavors develop - just store in an air tight container until ready to serve!

1 1/2 cups toasted almond (or other nut) chopped
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
4 bars chocolate

Butter pan (like 7×11 or 8×8) and sprinkle 1 cup of almonds evenly over bottom. Melt butter in heavy bottom saucepan, add brown sugar and cook over medium-high heat until gently boiling. Reduce heat to medium, and cook for 12 minutes, stirring constantly (if you have a candy thermometer, this will be about 300 degrees). Carefully pour onto baking sheet over almonds, and smooth with back of spoon. Arrange chocolate bars over top and let sit for a few minutes until melted. Evenly spread chocolate, and sprinkle with remaining almonds. Cool completely, and break into smaller pieces when ready to serve!

Make Your Own Butterfingers! Recipe Of The Day In Four Ingredients!

Filed under: FoodRecipesMariko Amekodommo

Mariko Pot

Butterfingers used to be my favorite candy …. until I started reading the labels on everything! Here is a delicious recipe for getting that peanut butter and chocolate fix in a matter of minutes! This recipe can also be gluten-free and vegan if you use the right chocolate and candy corn.

1 cup candy corn
1/3 cup peanut butter
3/4 chocolate chips

Line a small baking dish (around 5×5) with parchment paper. Add candy corn to microwave safe bowl, and heat for 30 seconds, or until melted (be careful not to overcook it). Immediately add peanut butter and stir until well mixed; if it begins to harden, microwave for 10 seconds. Pour mixture into baking dish, and smooth out with spoon. Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over top, and microwave for 5-10 seconds. Spread melted chocolate chips evenly over top of peanut mixture, and put in freezer to chill - about 15 minutes. I like to cut mine in small, fun-size rectangles, and wrap in cute cellophane to serve!

Bear Breaks Into A Chocolate Shop!

Filed under: Silly!Legal MattersCuteness!BearCrazzzzyWildlife

Bulls likes china shops, and bears love honey…

But this grizzly has more of a sweet tooth.

A Colorado (what is it with this state and bears!) chocolate shop owner found many of his treats missing and his surveillance video caught everything on tape.

The bear took advantage of a faulty lock and slips inside after hours to grab some candy.

He left but came back after he couldn't resist the cravings!!!!

We feel your pain! LOLz!

Good News, Kids! Study Shows Sweets Could Be Good For You!

Filed under: FoodObese

candy-good-for-kids.jpg

Could this be true??

A study at Louisiana State University shows that allowing children to eat sweets could actually prevent them from getting fat.

11,000 children between the ages of 2 and 18 were studied from 1999 to 2004. The children who ate sweets such as candy and chocolate bars were 22% LESS likely to be overweight or obese.

In fact, amongst the adolescents, 26% of those kids who ate candy were more likely to weigh less than the other students.

Researcher Dr. Carol O'Neil says:

"The study illustrates that children and adolescents who consume candy are less likely to be overweight or obese. However, the results of this study should not be construed as a hall-pass to overindulge. Candy should not replace nutrient-dense foods in the diet; it is a special treat and should be enjoyed in moderation."

Researchers added that indulging in sweets every one in a while will "provide moments of happiness within the context of a healthy lifestyle," why is most likely what leads to the children living a more fulfilled life.

This is some crazy research! It seems almost too good to be true for kids. But, like the doctor mentioned, kids should only eat sweets in moderation and remember to never overindulge.
