Candy Stack
Judging by the amount of people who finish it off in their car on the way home or take it up to the mountain for a snowboarding trip snack, a ‘recipe’ for candy is definitely not required.  You can pretty much just eat it.  Sometimes I like to play with textures and flavor combinations though, so if you’d like to do more than toss a few crackers on the side we’ve got a nice quick idea to fancy it up!

 

1 organic green apple

small block firm white cheese (I like to use a sharp, aged cheese for max flavor)

small package of fresh raspberries

4 oz king candy

 

For an appetizer or finger food, cube your cheese, apple and candy into relatively similar sized pieces – not too big, we’re going for a single elegant bite.  Run a toothpick through the center of a raspberry, then the candy, apple and cheese to make a nice stack.  Serve with a crisp glass of pinot gris and a salad!  Or… you can translate the whole thing into a dinner salad by leaving out the toothpick and just piling it all on top of some butter lettuce and drizzling with raspberry vinaigrette.  Super flavor
