Sweet On Candy Bars

On my wedding to-do list, one thing I knew I had to have – a self serve candy bar.  All the best bar mitzvahs had a candy bar, and I was ready to re-live the glory for my big day.  I even had a wedding stamp made and patiently stamped hundreds of penny candy brown paper bags with our wedding logo.  We went a tad overboard and had such massive jars of penny candies, we decided to open the candy bar early, setting up shop on rehearsal night and leaving the candy out through the weekend (destination weddings simplify that.) A giant self service buffet of candy is pretty much my ideal, and both kids and adults munched on candy all weekend long.

The hubby and I are planning a house warming party to celebrate our new home (as soon as I get to the other 37 vital things on my list), and I will undoubtedly have a candy bar.  Only this time, I might get extra ambitious and hand-make all of the candies.  You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not.  (Bonus points if you know the origin of that ridiculous quote.)
