One of our favorite Domestic Square Peg “cookbooks” is ‘The Cake Mix Doctor” by Anne Byrn. It’s perfect for the less-than-domestic goddess who wants to bring something ‘homemade’ to the party but doesn’t really want (or need) to bake something from scratch. The book has over 150 yummy recipes that all start from a basic cake box mix.
The day after Halloween finds many of us in a sugar-coma and looking for ways to get rid of all that extra sinfully delicious candy that beckons us from everywhere.
This ‘Candy Bar‘ recipe uses those leftover candy bars and makes easy and delicious treats.
