I really like board games. Does this make me a dork? I’m thinking yes.
The thing is, if loving board games is wrong, I’m not so sure I want to be right.
Bring me your Yahtzees, Parcheesis, Strategos and Battleships. Oh, sweet Battleship.
D2. D3. D4. D5.
I just sunk your battleship.
An important factor in successful board game play is the food that you choose to fuel your victory.
Candy is one of my favored options.
But I will admit that I don’t care for store-bought saccharined out candy.
No, after the Great Jolly Rancher Phase of 1992, my taste buds converted to rustic, homemade candies. They are so much more fresh and flavorful. Just like this brittle.
You may be asking yourself what sesame seeds have to do with southwestern cuisine – they’re actually often used as thickening agents in moles and other sauces.
I like the flavor of sesame because it’s subtle, and I like the crunch of the seeds.
What better way to punch up some brittle candy?
