Have a sweet tooth you need to satisfy? Try one of these two sugary treats (one is adults-only) this summer that are truly a treat to your taste buds.
The combination of salty and sweet is an amazing one–and pretty much irresistible. Edward Marc Chocolatier recently unveiled Snappers. This tasty treat is concocted of crispy pretzels, creamy caramel and rich milk chocolate. The crunchy and creamy texture, alongside those salty and sweet flavors, is quite delicious. The bite-size Snappers are perfect as a sweet after-school snack (for those days the kiddos are extra good) or perhaps a sweet little snack for Mom and Dad once the kiddos go to bed. Available at most Valley Costo locations. (Cashew Snappers and Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Snappers are also available.) www.edwardmarc.com.
The new UV Sugar Crush vodka is made with all-natural flavors and has a refreshing taste of tropical fruit-flavored candy. Though UV Sugar Crush is delish with lemon-lime soda (one part UV Sugar Crush, three parts soda), showcasing the sweet, fruity flavor, the spirit can also be used to make summery cocktails, like this:
1 part UV Sugar Crush
1 part cranberry juice
1 part Peach Schnapps
1 part orange juice
Rim glass with sugar. Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a martini glad. Garnish with an orange slice. www.uvvodka.com.
