Sweet Tooth Monday

I don't really consider myself a die hard sugar lover. Generally, I prefer savory over sweet, but occasionally (like today) I'm craving sugary, yummy, homemade sweet treats. Now, I've bought A LOT of things on Etsy, but I've never purchased anything edible. When searching for items to indulge my cravings, I was pleasantly surprised to find an amazing amount of incredible creations. I'd be more than happy to receive any of these as a stocking stuffer (B, are you reading, please hunny, I really would like some macarons?)

I never knew that existed! I am NOT a big chocolate fan, but good caramel and I'm there in a heartbeat. Those caramels look delish! And so do several of those truffles. Mouth watering now.

Those pumpkin pie truffles are calling to me, which is very bad news for my thighs.

I have not taken that dive yet but, I was spying the "City Caramels" site on etsy...good packaging and narrows down the selection with a sampler box.

hey lady,

never tried treats from etsy, but here is the link for the local chocolate maker i am working with! everything is made in house, straight from the cacoa bean, which is sustainably sourced from farmers in south america.

Yum, yum, yum! I have bought candy from Etsy before and I thought it was delicious. Now that I think of it, I should probably buy more! :-)

Jessica said...

I found a recipe last year for making sea salt caramels. I think I'll give them a whirl this year just because of the photo you posted!

Courtney said...

I have never ordered anything edible but those sea salt caramels have convinced me otherwise - how delicious.

Gabbi said...

Yum... yet to buy food through etsy but I love the idea and definitely need to try. ♥

Tania said...

DESPERATE to get my hands on a pumpkin pie truffle, although possibly less so if there were to be a Christmas post delay thing...

Ginger said...

Earl Grey cookies from Whimsey and Spice. Yum.

The Cottage Cheese said...

Oh my! Those pumpkin pie truffles look particularly tempting. I bought whoopie pies and chocolate chip cookies from etsy seller BrokenRoadFarm, and they were absolutely amazing! Sadly, I don't think she sells the whoopie pies anymore :(

The Baby Head Diarist said...

Because of you; I just ordered two truffle samplers from Trufflemakers. One for me & one for a friend (gotta share the wealth)!

Piper Jacquelyn said...

I make my own Fleur de Sel caramels from Epicurious each year and positively LOVE them! Such a great combination of flavors!
