Chocolate Saltine Toffee aka Christmas Crack

24 Dec

My colleague brought this to our holiday pot luck. It was delicious! I can’t wait to make it for more holidays and just change the toppings.

Are you sick of cookies yet? Wait, is that even possible? I really don’t think so. I know that I could NEVER get sick of cookies. But in case you are, I have a non-cookie Christmas dessert recipe for you. It is called Christmas Crack, aka Chocolate Saltine Toffee. Why is it called Christmas crack? Because you can’t stop eating the stuff! It is sooo good. I don’t know why I did this to myself. I love toffee, so naturally I haven’t been able to stop eating this since I made it. I finally had to hide it in the back corner of my freezer. Let’s hope I forget it is there today!

A Royal Ice Cream and Candy Shoppe

16 Aug

Velvet Ice Cream

While vacationing in Harbor Springs Michigan, I tasted the best ice cream ever at Velvet. Owners Trish and Erik Berakovich named the store Velvet to evoke a royal ambiance and experience.

Just like the name, Velvet’s ice cream is regal and rich.  My favorite flavor (there are 28) is the sea salt chocolate carmel. Let’s not forget about the candy — sumptuous homemade carmel corn and fudge.  To complement the ice cream, Sanders products are available.

Purple reigns as the color of choice. The stylish boxes match the wallpaper.

Velvet is not to be missed on Main St. in Harbor Springs. The owners are thinking of opening a store in metro-Detroit. Where do you think the sweetest spot for Velvet 2 would be?
