Kitchen Sink Bar Ingredients

I am a sucker for sales. Candy, clothes, puppies (well, I’ve never really seen a puppy sale, but you can bet if there were such a thing, I would be driving home with a car full of them) – you name it, I’ll buy it.

On a recent grocery trip to my local H.E.B., I stumbled across one of their super saver sales where you buy one product and get a whole bunch of others for free. In this case, if you bought a chocolate or vanilla white chocolate coating, you would also receive a bag of pretzels, pecans, and marshmallows on the house.

I didn’t really need any of those things, but I figured I am always in need of chocolate for my recipes, so stocking up seemed like a good idea. Undecided about whether I wanted to purchase the milk chocolate or white chocolate variety, I bought both and thus had two of all the freebies.

Once I got home and the sale-high wore off, I realized I was stuck with a lot of food I don’t usually eat. If only there were some way to combine them all…. Could it be possible? I mean, pretzels, marshmallow, pecans, and chocolate don’t seem like they all gel together, but who has tried them all at once? Putting my culinary wits to the test, I was determined to come up with a confectionery treat that utilized them all. The result? My January candy recipe of the month I call the Kitchen Sink Bar.

Chocolate Covered Pretzel Dipping

In my house, the holidays spell candy in a big way. When I was a kid, we’d start making Christmas candy a week or two before Christmas. Now that I have two children with birthdays in early and mid December, we basically have one big party from Thanksgiving to New Year’s.

This year, mainly because of my new Candy Addict status, we decided to begin the candy making before Thanksgiving. I’d like to share a simple recipe with you, and maybe you’d like to start a new family tradition on this Thanksgiving Day. A tradition worthy of a true Candy Addict. Forget football – make candy after dinner!
