No I'm not making this post for birthday wishes but because I am 30. :O) Today I am not really blogging today just enjoying my last day of vacation before we go back to work and school. How many of my parent readers are excited their kids go back tomorrow?? I am going to make myself an amazing Gluten Free feast today which I will post later.

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
