Licorice Allsort Slice, submitted by fuss free cooking on Foodbuzz. If you haven’t tried licorice allsorts, get thee to a confectionary stat! They are one of the best-ever “old man candies” (more on this later), and one that I discovered only a year ago. My favorites are the coconut licorices: rings of coconut candy, dyed Pepto pink or Peeps yellow, encircling bits of black licorice. Of course, the multicolored sandwich stax are tasty, too.
I realize that the Allsort Slice falls into the same category as M&M-spiked Rice Krispie treats and Puppy Chow, but guess what? This coming weekend is a holiday weekend, and therefore I give myself full license to make the most teeteringly-decadent sweet treat(s) I can find. End-of-summer sugar coma, here we come!
