Mrs. Cavanaugh Chocolate Review




Time was when Marie Cavanaugh spent hours in her South Dakota farmhouse each Christmas season making pecan rolls and homemade chocolates for holiday gifting.
“It started when my aunt sent her pecan-rolls recipe,” Mrs. Cavanaugh recalled. “I gave the recipe my own touch and started making the yummy specialties.  Then I began dipping chocolates.  Our friends and neighbors loved these treats, encouraging me to start a candy business.  Finally, I decided it might be a good idea.'”


Her husband George and children Carla, Lorraine, Calvin, Colene and Genise rallied, helping Mrs. Cavanaugh fill demands for her homemade sweets.
...In 1972, the family moved to Utah, leaving good friends and their beloved cattle ranch.  

“It was a difficult decision, especially for George,” Mrs. Cavanaugh said. “He was excited about making our new venture, which we chose to call Mrs. Cavanaugh's Candies, a great success.  We felt Utah was blessed with good chocolates and that we would enjoy - and could compete with - those who pride themselves on making excellent chocolates.”
Millions of pounds of chocolates later, Mrs. Cavanaugh's candies have earned a reputation for unquestionable excellence....

My Review:


 I was a little kid when I opened the mail and found this chocolate!  The different varieties they sent me made mouth water.  Even if I was in the process of watching all the food that went into my mouth I was still going to sample and enjoy these chocolates.   I didn't feel as guilty knowing that this company does not use preservatives in their cooking.  

My husband and I waited for our children to go to sleep and then we opened the chocolate box.  (Parents... I know you have been there too!   I'm not the only one who didn't want to feed their kids chocolate late at night and be sneaky.)  My husband and I had fun trying to figure out what each chocolate was before sampling it.  


The next day we were traveling and my husband grabbed one of the candy bars.   I was amazed at how much caramel was in it.   It was like a Milky Way but WAY better.  My kids both enjoyed splitting the Mint candy bar and my husband scarfed down almond coconut and the roasted almond.  

I was also browsing their website and was thrilled with all the different varieties of chocolates and other treats.   There are so many things to try and I'm sure you will enjoy sampling some too.  

Disclaimer-  I received free samples from Mrs. Cavanaugh in exchange for an honest review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
