Make Your Own Candy Bars
Corner-store sweets go high-end
Here’s the thing with nostalgia: Memories betray you. Those candy bars that you remember loving are stuffed full of waxy chocolate, weird fillers, and preservatives. Try our souped-up take on four beloved candy bars. Give the store-bought stuff to the kids, and save these for yourself. And, for crafty extra credit, download the wrappers for each candy.
ROLL OVER FOR COMPARISON
Our take on the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup™, this is the easiest and most universally loved of the bunch.
The CHOW version of an Almond Joy™ requires a bit more concentration than the Peanut Butta Cups but is still simple enough for first-time candy makers.
For our adaptation of a Twix™, you’ll make the shortbread cookie and caramel filling and dip it all in chocolate.
