I remember eating this as a child and wondering how in the world they got the "bubbles" in it- now I know! It may not sound like it will work but it does; just make sure not to spread the candy or the "bubbles" will pop and you'll wind up with toffee.

My pet: Daniel and I have a Miniature Pinscher named Milo. He is the weirdest little guy, I assure you. Min Pins were originally bred to hunt rats... since we don't have any of those vermin running around, mine hunts crickets! His favorite thing to do is jump up on the couch when he thinks you're not looking and snuggle up warm and comfy with a blanket. He's a sneaky rascal!
