GTTC: spicy chocolate kisses

While hurricane Irene was making a mess outdoors, we were making a mess indoors. My daughters found the Hershey's Kiss making machine from the depths of the game closet. It's pretty cool actually, the gun melts the chocolate that you squeeze into the mold. Then you cut out foil squares, cut out the paper strips, and another little contraption wraps the chocolate into a perfect little Hershey's Kiss. We each made our own set of 4 chocolates (each set taking waaaay too long!!!), my set contained bits of dried cayenne pepper - little spicy chocolate kisses!

What are you doing with your peppers or other garden harvests? Join the Garden to Table Challenge - post about it with a link to this blog, then add your blog to the link below!


  1. I have never heard of a candy Kiss machine. How cool.

    So far...nothing to add to the GTTC this week. But who knows what will happen tomorrow.

  2. I haven't heard of one, either, but it sounds like amazing fun.
    When we were little, our mother would occasionally let us have a "taffy pull" on rainy days. It was so much fun coating our hands with butter so the taffy wouldn't stick to our skin. The taffy, which was molasses based, was delicious. The hardest part was waiting for it to cool so it could be wrapped in wax paper, and, of course, eaten.

  3. All these years in the classroom and not once have I heard of this kiss machine! Looks like your kiddos had a great time...what a great memory!


My awesome gardening friends...thanks for leaving a comment! I don't typically repond here, but I love knowing who you are so I can visit your blog as well.

btw - if you're trying to show me nude Miley Cyrus photos, sell me nikes or viagra or antibiotics, or encourage my lovely garden readers to visit your site on solar panel construction, or seo-whatevers, sorry, but I'm not publishing your comment. If you want to moderate my blog - well, I can't keep you too busy, and the pay would be horrible. And lastly, no. I'm not interested in Club Penguin cheat codes. Thanks anyway.
