In this recipe for sugar corkscrews, sugar is cooked until deeply caramelized and then spiraled to form these decorative corkscrew curls. Sugar Corkscrews add beauty and sophistication to any dessert. Do not try to make these or any other sugar decorations on a humid day, as the moisture in the air will make it extremely difficult to produce good results! This recipe yields enough sugar for several dozen corkscrew curls, so if you only need a few, you can easily half the recipe. Don't miss the step-by-step photo tutorial showing how to make sugar corkscrews , and the accompanying video on making sugar corkscrews ! Ingredients:

Posted May 8th, 2012 by SandiArata Serve up a yummy treat in a handmade, edible dessert cup. And, for a sweet twist on the traditional Mother’s Day bouquet, use edible flowers as an extra special topper. You’ll love how easy this is! Plus, edible cups are like two desserts in one—and double dessert is definitely not a bad thing!
Well the boys are back to school and Bella and I are finding plenty to do! Yesterday — homemade gummi bears! All we needed was 1 -3 oz box of flavored gelatin and 2 – 1/4 oz packages of unflavored gelatin, water and candy molds. (we used two candy molds) Place 1/3 cup water in a small sauce pan. Sprinkle the Jello and unflavored gelatin over the water.
And you wouldn’t believe how easy it is to make them—if you can make jello, you can make homemade gumdrops ! A quick search of the Interwebs yielded many different recipes. Some with flavored gelatin and others with, oddly enough, applesauce. Variations of this recipe abound, and I love it both for its simplicity as well as its adaptability to any flavor or any color in the rainbow! So, let’s get to it.

I fell in love with making homemade caramels last fall when I found and re-created the Ale and Pretzel Soft Caramels . Those babies are incredibly addicting! I’m not sure how I stumbled upon Shawna’s recipe for these sea salt caramels recently, but I’m so glad that I found them.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles I’ve never liked chocolate chip cookies. Go ahead and throw tomatoes at me if you’d like, but I don’t like ‘em. They’re just a plain old cookie, after all, with a few studs of chocolate chips in them.
