One Wednesday a month, Erika and I host a link up where we share 3 random things we would take with us on a deserted island. They’re silly, funny, totally lighthearted things that we would hope to have with us should we ever be you know…stranded.
So far, we’ve had these topics…
And today…what three types of Halloween candy would you take?
So…I thought. I pondered. I debated in my head. I’m going to be honest, I’m not a real candy person. Give me all the pie, cobbler and brownies too…but candy has never really been my thing. There is one exception to the rule and that is my obvious first choice…English Toffee.
Me eating an English toffee cookie in Nantucket.
We trick or treat with the same big group of friends every year…
…and I shamelessly beg, bribe and borrow/steal their Heath bars (which is the closest thing you get on Halloween night). Toffee is my love language. I love toffee. Give me all the toffee. English toffee, you would be with me on that island.
And side note, if you love toffee too, then you should make one of my toffee recipes:
TOFFEE CRUNCH PIE
GINGERSNAP TOFFEE CHRISTMAS CRUNCH
TOFFEE COFFEE BROWNIES
CHOCOLATE TOFFEE BARS
STICKY TOFFEE BUNDT CAKE
TOFFEE CRUNCH BUNDT CAKE
So, after toffee, I had to think long and hard and decided I would need the protein on the island, so I picked…
…because peanut butter cups are protein, right? #itellmyselfthatsometimes
Whenever I’m tired of fish, coconut and leaves on the island, I’ll pull out a peanut butter cup. #blessedness
Okay, am I the only one who thinks the holiday peanut butter cups are just so much better than the regular ones??? The pumpkin/heart/Christmas tree cups have way more peanut butter and (I know this is weird), but I think they’re better without the ridges around the top. Is that weird? Am I the only one? Why don’t they make the big puffy ridge-less ones year around? Sigh.
If you love a good peanut butter and chocolate recipe, I have you covered there too:
PEANUT BUTTER CUP S’MORES
BANANA CUPCAKES WITH PEANUT BUTTER CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE CHIP CHEESECAKE
CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER BARS
And then my third choice is just so random. I can’t really explain it, but I love…
Yes ma’am. Give me those little red pieces of spicy heaven and I’m so happy.
Okay, what three pieces of candy would you want to take on a deserted island??? If you blogged, link up! If you didn’t, just comment and tell me. I don’t know why, but I find this so interesting ;).
Next time on Stranded…What 3 types of outerwear would you take?
