The August 2011 Daring Bakers’ Challenge was hosted by Lisa of Parsley, Sage, Desserts and Line Drive and Mandy of What the Fruitcake?!. These two sugar mavens challenged us to make sinfully delicious candies! This was a special challenge for the Daring Bakers because the good folks at offered an amazing prize for the winner of the most creative and delicious candy!

I had a lot of fun ruining the kitchen and creating some great chocolate masterpieces! i had a little problem with keeping the chocolate tempered for the last rounds of truffles because the chocolate would cool fast and i don't have many slots in my chocolate molds.

i made three flavors.
s'more-- bittersweet chocolate filled with marshmallow frosting and graham cracker crumble (plain)
salty caramel--semisweet chocolate filled with salted caramel (caramel drizzle)
spicy chocolate--bittersweet chocolate filled with a spicy chocolate ganache (gold/red paint)
