Santa Chocolate Sucker![/caption] 2 Great Cities, 1 Great University, 1 Great Location for Chocolate Treats!  The holidays are here and this means parties, family and food.  Sweets and treats come to mind when we think of holiday parties, and Kathy's Kandies is baking up a storm to create specialty candies that are the perfect compliment to a holiday meal.  Chocolate truffles, cake balls, artisan chocolates; these are just a few items Kathy's Kandies is offering this holiday season. [caption id="attachment_4385" align="alignleft" ]Peppermint Bark Peppermint Bark[/caption] I love holiday time!  This year I am hosting not one holiday party, but two!  Planning the party, cooking all the food, and decorating my home are some of the best parts of the holidays.  Part of the planning is picking out the best treats to offer my guests along with a holiday favor to take home with them.  This year I have picked Kathy's Kandies to bake my "holiday specialty treats".  Kathy bakes the most decadent cake balls; rich, moist chocolate cake dipped in dark chocolate and sprinkled with fairy dust (this is not the name, but what it looks like!).  The cake balls are rich but bite sized, which makes them the perfect compliment to add after the big, hearty meal I will serve.  (Please note, Kathy makes a number of different flavors of cake balls!)  One more small addition to our holiday table is Kathy's chocolate pizzas.  The peppermint bark pizza will not only be a delicious treat guests can break into, but add a festive beauty to the table.

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Chicken Wings![/caption] I thought long and hard over my favor to send home with my guests this year. I wanted something unique, fun and memorable.  I contacted Kathy and she shared they are creating chocolate chicken wings filled with peanut butter that comes with a side of marshmallow fluff to dip them in.   I thought it sounded like such a fun dessert item that guests would love to take home.  I also couldn't stop myself from ordering Santa, reindeer and snowman novelty suckers for each couple to take home with them to their children. Kathy's Kandies also offers a slew of other desserts including gourmet popcorn, shakes & smoothies, drinking chocolate, licorice, cakes & cookies, candies and more!
