Kandy KakesLeave a comment


See an improvement in my photos? That’s because hubby got me a new camera specifically for blogging for my birthday. I am still learning, but very excited about my new toy!

For those of us that live in the Philadelphia area, Tastykake is a little slice of heaven. For me, I loved buying them at school in addition to whatever was in my lunch box. The most popular Tastykake has to be the Peanut Butter Kandy Kake, which honestly I don’t even like. Don’t get me wrong, peanut butter and chocolate are two of my favorite food groups, but I don’t like them together! I know it is sacrilegious or something to not like this combination, I hear it ALL the time.

Once a month at work we have “salad bar” where everyone signs up for different dips, desserts, etc. and we have a lunch pot luck for 2 days. It is my favorite day of the month and everyone gains new recipes out of it. This recipe comes from a co-worker who whenever she makes these for salad bar, everyone goes ga-ga over them, so I had to see if they were right. She handed over the recipe at the end of last school year and I found it stuffed in my desk while I was unpacking this past week. It is a super easy recipe, that makes a ton!
