Opera Creams, Turtles, Peanut Butter Meltaways, Caramels, Fudge, Bark, Ice Cream and Ice Balls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I could go on and on, this place will satisfy your Sweet Tooth…ha ha ha 😛 hence the name…Sweet Tooth…ha ha ha

Really I’m not kidding you, this place is an old fashion candy shop they have been making fine chocolates for over 100 years.  And at the Holiday’s they specialize in making delicious beautiful candies for Christmas, Easter, Sweetest Day and Valentine’s day.  Oh and they make Caramel Apples to die for!!!!

Cute tables to sit down if you want, they also have several benches outside to sit and enjoy your favorite treat too.

We also sell some of their delicious confections in our stores, and let me say their chocolate melts in your mouth!!

When I was a kid we would stop in here every once in awhile during the summer on our way to my Grandma’s house and get the famous Snow Ball!!  With Vanilla Ice Cream in the middle 🙂

I don’t really remember the flavor I would get, but I have a feeling it was something like grape or cherry!  But I’ll tell you those were great Friday nights when we would make that extra stop 🙂

Now a day’s I’m a sugar free Nectar with no Ice cream…but they do have terrific “Homemade” Ice Cream, I have tried the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk…delicious…Banana Chocolate Chip…very delicious…Key Lime Ice….even more delicious!!

This is the Key Lime Ice…with homemade waffle cone 🙂

The cone was so good and fresh…the way it should taste

But this past month its been the sugar free nectar, and what I like about this place is that its not in those silly paper cones.  Its in a heavy duty foam cup and a small is in a medium cup, a medium is in a large cup, a large is in a extra large cup.  Reasoning so you have room to get your spoon in there without ice spilling up all over, I love it and they putting plenty of juice on it too.  I have been down there so much this past month since its been so so dang gone HOT!! 

This is my Sugar Free Nectar…YUM!!  “their nectar is like “tiger’s blood” in other places, fruit berries with a hint of coconut”

Family Cobbler Recipe

Leave a comment

cobbcover

I love cobbler, but I love my families recipe the best, not that others out there are not good its just that I’m used this one.

You pretty much can use any fruit, I have used peaches, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries with white chocolate chips, apples, pears, cranberries, use your imagination the possibilities are unless.

These pictures are from when I made Apples & Cranberries.

cobb1 cobb2
Peel apples and cube add cranberries
cobb3 cobb4
Mix with sugar and cinnamon, set aside and start on batter
cobb5 cobb6
add sugar & melted butter, then mix in dry ingredients and milk
cobb7 cobb8
Pour batter into baking dish, top with fruit
cobb9 cobb10
take the ice cold water add vanilla to it and pour all over fruit and batter
cobb11 then bake.

Recipe:

3 – 4 cups fruit – (you can use frozen if you don’t have fresh)
1/2 cup + 3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
4 tbsp. butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup ice cold water

Use a 8×8, 9×8, 9×9, if you go bigger (9×13) I double the recipe.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a large bowl add fruit and 3/4 cup sugar and toss to coat all the fruit

In a medium bowl add butter and 1/2 cup sugar, whisk together, then add half the flour, salt and baking powder, whisk, then add half the milk, whisk again then add the rest of the flour and milk and whisk to make batter.

Pour batter into a sprayed baking dish

Sprinkle fruit all over batter

Mix 1 cup cold water and 1 tsp. vanilla together and pour over batter

Bake for about 40 minutes sometime is takes longer, you want it to look golden brown, I have gone as long as 1 hour for a double recipe.
