Hot and Humid Candy Options
I have a dear friend in the UK to whom I would really like to send some sweet treats, but I would also like to ensure that they are going to make it there safe and sound, considering that we are in the midst of a lovely record-breaking heat streak at the moment...so basically, no chocolate bars, right? I tried making marshmallows yesterday, but it must have been a combination of the heat and humidity (in the midwest we are dying of the humidity alone) that caused the goo to be too terrible to work with. I ended up throwing the lot out. Does anyone have any ideas for a candy that I could make to her, which would likely make it there intact? Or does anyone have a cookie or brownie idea that might also work? I have sent chocolate chip cookies before, but I fear that even they might not last. Gingersnaps?
