Elixir Fruitcake Cocktail Recipe
In an effort to give the much-maligned fruitcake a touch of cool, we asked renowned mixologist, H. Joseph Ehrmann, of Elixir in San Franciso, to come up with a cocktail version. His creation? A clever play on hot buttered rum that draws inspiration on the fruits and spices of this iconic holiday cake. — Maryse Chevriere

Easy Halloween Candy Chocolate Truffles
I was curious if I could make something delicious out of leftover candy from Halloween. Sure Reese's Cups, Hershey Bars, and the like are easy. No, I wanted to see if I could make something (beyond just edible) out of the fruitcake of Halloween — candy corn. I'm pretty sure most people who buy candy corn do it because it's inexpensive and it looks pretty in a bowl sitting out, collecting dust and sticking together in one big gooey blob of fall colors. I whipped up these easy chocolate truffles with Indian Corn, which is the redheaded stepcousin of candy corn. Instead of the yellow base (on the kernel) it's got a brown base, which is cocoa. So these taste like chocolate as opposed to the more marshmallowy traditional stuff. And as we all know, this stuff keeps seemingly forever. You could make up some of these easy chocolate truffles for your Thanksgiving get-together. No one will have any idea that the center is made from candy corn.
