It’s a weekend again! The much-awaited days are here — I wish that there were longer weekends though. My weekends are still busy but mostly spent lounging in front of the TV watching Netflix or a movie, or being busy in the kitchen cooking up some snacks or treats for the kids. Every weekend, my niece also comes over for a visit. She loves to cook so much that weekends are our special bonding moments. Since I have 4 boys, a little girl is a welcome relief! This weekend, we decided to make some yummy milk gummy candy.
Sweet and Spicy Milk Gummy Candy for Your Sweet Tooth
The unique thing about this milk gummy candy is that is has turmeric and ginger for that added kick. Both turmeric and ginger have health benefits so they’re good to mix with candy. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and is used in India as a medicinal herb. On the other hand, ginger improves digestion, eases olds and flu, helps reduce pain and inflammation, and also lowers the risk of cancer and heart problems.
This is what you call healthy candy. I’m sure my niece will love it even though it has that sort of spicy taste. She loves candy no matter what it tastes– sweet, sour, salty, spicy — she’ll eat it!
Let’s Get it On!
My sons were pestering my niece and asking her to sing and dance instead of cooking. She proudly went up to them and said, “Later! You won’t have any candy if you bother me!” That stopped them huh! Imagine a 5-year-old girl standing up to them tall boys! Now, that’s what I call a smart and brave girl!
So, we’re almost done with the milk gummy candy. We have them set in the Kitchenatics Silicone Chocolate and Candy Molds – 4 sets of them, even the Christmas ones! We have already placed them in the fridge to cool. The recipe is for 20 pieces so feel free to double or triple them.
