Making Fictional Luck-E-Choc Candy

IMG_0740

It’s fiction..tastes too good to be true.  When Charlie unwrapped that Wonka Bar or Harry took the first bite of a Bertie Botts Every Flavor Bean we all knew they weren’t real.  But that didn’t stop us from wishing we could taste the “make believe” confections .  Wishes do come true.  Now you have those goodies that sprung from the pages of your favorite book.  The once fictional products can be found in stores or on-line.  So go on, try a chocolate frog, Wonka Bar or if you’re feeling really adventurous a vomit flavored jelly bean.  On second thought, why not follow our special recipe and make some Luck-E-Chocs?  In Eleventh Elementum the rich dark chocolate with a creamy mint-flavored center is Skylee Porter’s favorite candy.  But do they really bring her good luck?
