A Special Treat From A Favorite Place


One of our favorite candies in this house are the Pine Nut Rolls from Nelson's Columbia Candy Kitchen in Columbia, California.
When I was in Columbia the other day, I made it a point to take some photos at the shop. They also have fabulous fudge:
And lollipops:
Sugar free candies:
And all sorts of other wonderful treats!

I didn't buy any candy that day. The picture below was taken when my husband came home with some of our favorite kind a few weeks ago:

They're a very special treat. We don't buy them very often, and when we do, we try to make them last as long as possible. They have this yummy vanilla creamy filling on the inside, coated with chocolate and rolled in pine nuts. I wish I knew how to replicate the recipe.
They are, simply put, an absolutely exquisite confection.

Ahhh, just looking at the pictures brings the smell of the wonderful place wafting across my living room. I feel as if I can almost taste the pine nuts! Thank you for the visit, it has been a few years since I was there last with my friend Karen. Yummy! Love T
