Always digging through the candy pail for one of these long, cherry-flavored candies? Replace that Twizzler (or Red Vine!) with a Cherry Bulldog and you’ll get more than a sugar buzz. Bing cherries, star anise, gin and port would be even better sipped through one of those sweet straws. Get the recipe.
There’s nothing better than finding a bright orange wrapper filled with a delectable peanut butter–chocolate treat. But it’s even better when it comes in a miniature glass. As bite-size as its candy-coated equal, the Chocomole combines a Mexican chocolate mixture that uses peanut butter, as well as chile powder and tequila. Olé to the adult peanut-butter cup!
