Anyway.. this was an interesting process. Very much like making caramel, but a lot more 'doughy'.
Mind you, this whole process took about 3 hours, and I was also concocting more candy for a special trick-or-treater while doing this.
Once I had allowed the stuff to cool, I decided to do my coloring. I don't know that the color turned out the way I wanted, but no matter.. it still had color.
Knead, roll, knead, roll... til I had some ropes.
Ropes 'o candylicious.
I air dried them in a container for a while
First off, I would like to thank baby mama for a very yummy dinner. She does make the best 'beef' stew of ever, and she didn't dissapoint.
I would like to say that American Legacy Tours gives a great haunted tour. We learned alot. I also learned I should never step into 1313 Vine Street ever again.
For those of you who do not know what that is - it's the good ole' Warehouse club back in the 90's. I spent a little time there myself, trying to be goth. The entrance, and downstairs was creepy, but frighteningly enough part of my history so it was a little more familiar comforting (if there is such a thing) ..but wow... the stuff (and by stuff I mean spirit activity) upstairs in that building. Let's not talk about it.
For the same reason we shouldn't talk about a woman that they spoke of on the tour that I think might be connected to none other than my best buddy for three weeks last year, Mr. Augustus Kroell. I've begun more research now. I just needed another sign to get my butt back in gear. Thank you, Rev. Kroell.. see I didn't forget about you!
Regardless, after touring, we got back to baby-mama's house and had some conversational exchanges, but it got so late and everyone got tired that I think I just plumb forgot to even muster up the energy to make the
drink.. BUT, the show must go on, so, I made it for myself, yesterday, thinking maybe it'd get rid of the pounding headache and slight anxiety I'd been experiencing since the tour.
I wanted to make this 'Halloween' invocative, so I used my Disney Villains martini glass and shaker (of mind you which I've had for years and have NEVER used).
I thought I'd be cute and creative with the candy corn too. ;)
Maleficent horns, meet candy corn horns.
(Well, that's how I felt after the drink!)
STRONG smashing success.
It's my Halloween veganization, of course!
I'm trying to decide though if I want to share it with the office, or keep it to myself.
