Anyone who lives in or has lived in California probably knows about See’s Candies. I can remember getting See’s candies for Christmas since I was a little girl. When my husband and I were first dating we would frequently go in and just get some Bordeaux Candy since they were his favorite. When we lived in Utah for a bit Bordeaux candy was something that we missed and couldn’t wait to get our hands on when we visited California.
This year my husband was feeling ambitious and decided that he was going to try and make a copy cat version of his favorite candy treat. He found the recipe over at The E Wife Blogs Again and of course we were skeptical at first. They didn’t take long to make and tasted pretty darn close to the original thing. Defiantly a sweet treat that he will probably be making again.
