Baileys Ganache-Filled Chocolates Baileys酒心朱古力

I bought a bottle of Baileys and Kahlua at the airport duty free shop when I travelled back home from Los Angeles during Christmas time.

Sugar Free Cola Gummies 無糖可樂軟糖

My friend Erica has shared with me her Cola gummies recipe last week. I have tweaked this and turned them into sugar free gummies. Some people say that sugar free cola doesn’t taste as great as the “real” one. However, for people who are concerned about sugar intake or are diabetic, these gummies will definitely … Continue reading Sugar Free Cola Gummies 無糖可樂軟糖
