Okay I know that was a little nerdy. What could be more fitting though really for this post. Recently my family was given the chance to review a Darth Maul costume from Wholesalestarwarscostumes.com, so we are stuck in Star Wars mode around here. Then again when aren't we, The Clone Wars is one of my sons favorite shows to watch. When we received the costume of course first came the fighting over who was going to wear it.lol So after checking ten times who it fit better my oldest son finally won. I was amazed by the quality of the costume. The material was thick and well put together, unlike so many costumes I have bought before and all for under $30! The kids have had HOURS of fun with this costume and can't wait to use it for Halloween. My middle child has already picked out which character he wants to be and we are all ready to order his. If you are looking for great costumes from Star Wars I recommend this site for you :O) they have everything from adult sizes and even that special costume for your pet!

Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
