5 unique takes on candy in Kansas City

butterscotch-bourbon-012514With Cadbury Creme Eggs and heart boxes of candy sitting next to each other on grocery store shelves, we’re officially in candy season. Whether you celebrate Valentine’s day or not, The Recommended Daily wanted to give you five different ways to give or get sweets in Kansas City.

5. Butterscotch BourbonGlace Artisan Ice Cream (4960 Main Street). Like a fine adult Werther’s, the butterscotch bourbon shows why you should defy conventional logic and battle these frosty temperatures with something frozen.

4. Nickers BarThe American Restaurant (200 E 25th Street). Pastry chef Nick Wesemann’s take on the Snickers bar is an inspired one. It’s a chocolate torte with bacon candy, cashew caramel and a nougat wafer. It will light up all your salty and sweet spots like a carnival test-your-strength game.

3. ChocoflakesPanache Chocolatier (418 Nichols Road). At Panache, they dip everything in chocolate. The Chocoflakes, Corn Flakes enrobed in milk or dark chocolate, are simultaneously crunchy and creamy.

2. Deep-fried SnickersThe Funnel Cake Truck. It’s a frozen, battered, deep-fried candy bar with a gooey center that is a commitment that should not be taken lightly. Bring a friend and a cold glass of milk.

1. Butterscotch TeaT. Loft (8025 State Line Road). It’s all of the sweetness of butterscotch in hot liquid form. It’s a to-go cup (T. Loft has lids with strainers built into the top to keep the loose leaf tea from escaping) of indulgence. For readers on the Kansas side, T. Loft is opening a second location at Park Place (5225 W. 116th Place, Leawood) on February 7.
