Recipes for Seasonal Confections

I would love some suggestions for your best bars, interesting cookies, small cakes, and fudge. I'd like something a little interesting and special, if possible. chocolate raspberry is a fvorite as is white chocolate with almost anything. I've also been wanting to make a butterscotch custard, but I don't know how I'd make that a small, transportable dessert, without making it a tart, which I don't want to do.

I always like good old fashioned chocolate "bark". Dress it up by swirling white chocolate in it; add raisins or pistachio or candied pecan pieces. Make it taste exceptional with a sprinkle of sea salt!

Here is some information on butterscotch custard: http://www.food52.com/recipes... The recipe for the butterscotch is linked from that page. There is a series of five videos here on food52 starring Shuna Lydon at Peels in NYC, with Merrill and Amanda, explaining how to make a great custard. Here is the first: http://food52.com/blog... Above the videos are links to the next in the series. I have not made the butterscotch pudding, but I have used the method recommended in the videos and it does, indeed, produce a silken, smooth, luxurious custard. Have fun! ;o)

Thanks all, and appreciate the link to Shuna's videos, AntoniaJames. I never watched these and totally forgot they existed here.

One of the class' favorite confections in my "holiday goodies" class was a white chocolate bark with pink himalayian salt, pink peppercorns, and dried blueberries (or dried cherries) and sliced almonds.
