|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
