A Celebratory Tootsie Giveaway!

Categories: Candy,Candy Giveaways

Tootsie Roll

That’s right, folks, Candy Addict is BAAAAACK! While there are still a few glitches here and there, the Candy Addict you know and love is nearly back to her old self. Everything might look the same to you, but behind the scenes there have been a lot of changes. We’re still ironing out some details, but for all intents and purposes we’re back to our old selves. And ain’t we purty?

Anyway, to celebrate our return to normalcy (or what passes as such around here), we’re offering our THIRD giveaway of the month! This time around the fabulous folks at Tootsie have offered a candy basket assortment with different Tootsie candies! How great is that??

As a big thank you to all of you who stuck with us through our downtime, this contest is going to be really simple. To win, all you have to do is leave a comment on any post between now and midnight, April 30, 2009. That’s it! One random entry will be chosen from all entries that have some sort of substance (meaning one-word comments aren’t going to cut it).

The fine print, as always: You must be over 18 to win. Don’t spam our site, because if you do, you won’t win. Anything. Ever. Seriously, don’t do it. You must live in the lower 48 (which means if you live in Alaska or Hawaii, you’re out of luck, though at least you have nice scenery). If you don’t respond to our notification email within two days your prize will be awarded to someone else. In other words, make sure you use an email address that you’ll remember to check!

Candy Giveaway: Basket of 3 Musketeers Goodness!

3 Musketeers Basket

Candy Addict is still in transition, but that doesn’t mean we can’t bring you another fabulous giveaway, this time from 3 Musketeers! For the entire month of March you’ll have the chance to leave a comment telling us your favorite recipe including 3 Musketeers. We’ll pick two winners and they’ll receive a totally fab basket full of 3 Musketeers and 3 Musketeers Mint. I personally love 3 Musketeers, and coming up with recipes sounds like great fun.

As usual, some restrictions apply. You must be over 18 and be a US resident of the Lower 48 (sorry Alaska and Hawaii). Entries must include a recipe and you need to use your real email address when you enter; it won’t be displayed on the site, but we need it to contact you should you win. If you don’t respond within 48 hours of us contacting you, we’ll select another winner. Entries will be accepted until midnight, March 31.

Update: Our winners were Gwen and Tessa. Here are their winning recipes:

First, my love affair with 3 Musketeers began in highschool when our sex ed class consisted of a woman standing up and saying if we had the urge to merge, eat a snickers bar. I raised my hand and said (innocently I swear) “what if prefer 3 musketeers?”and promptly got detention. From that day on, I ate a 3M bar every morning where the principal could see me.

My fave in college was to make 3M hot cocoa. You have to freeze the mini 3 Musketeers first. Once frozen break up into small bits (putting them in a plastic bag helps) and put at a bottom of a mug (enough to cover the bottom third). Pour milk in for the other third and a pinch more. Put in the microwave for about a minute, stir and continue in 30 second intervals until all the chocolate is melted.

Out of college, I’ve been making my own concoction again. Yes, I do go for premade stuff,but hey, once I get a craving it’s easier. 3 Musketeer Cookie Pops. Buy premade sugar cookie doll and roll out. Take a biscuit cutter (or use an empty soup can) and cut out as many circles as you can. You can reroll all the scraps to make more. Cut mini 3 musketeer bars in half. Place one half of a cut mini 3M bar in the center of one of the circles and mold the dough around. Place all molded balls on a greased cookie sheet and cook per the directions of the premade cookie dough. While the dough is cooking, chop up any remaining mini 3M bars and place them on a double boiler and melt. Once the cookies come out of the oven and are still soft, stick popsicle sticks in the center of the balls (you can also cut chopsticks for this but be careful of splinters!). Dip the cookie pops in the melted chocolate and roll in any remaining 3M dust you may have. Place on wax paper then put in the fridge to cool for 30 minutes. Enjoy! There probably is a real recipe for it out there, but this is my “original” version.

Three Musketeers Fried Pies

1 (10-count) can refrigerated biscuits

1 large Three Musketeers bar

Confectioners’ sugar

Roll each biscuit out flat. Cut candy bar into 10 wedges; lay one wedge in middle of each biscuit and fold over.

Crimp edges together and deep fry until golden brown.

Let cool, and roll in confectioners’ sugar.
