Around Christmas time we always think of different kinds of candy and confections, and anticipate the enjoyment when they're greedily consumed by friends and family. This year i made several different kinds as gifts, chocolate covered cherries and raisins, peppermint bark, haystacks, candied orange peels. Most of these just require a few simple ingredients put together, much like Amaretto's confection horses. All you have to do to try for them is breed any two confection eyed horses together and hope for a good result.
What eyes are considered Confection eyes? Check these out
They first hit the scene in January 30, 2012 and were hiding in new starters. More confection eyes were added in the 4.0 update released September 9, 2013. New confection eyes were added when version 6.01 Horse update came out on Apr.27,2019 they were Caramel Swirl, Banana Split, Jelly Beans, and Cherry Pie!
On Amaretto's 4th birthday, September 1, 2014, the revealed the Confection horses! These could be randomly birthed by breeding together any two horses that have Confection Eyes, to get one of 6 beautiful, random Confection coats.
Confection Horses can NOT pass their coat. However breeding a Confection Horse with another Confection Horse or with any other horse with Confection Eyes you will slightly increase your chance for another Confection Horse. The eye on that Confection horse does have the ability to pass. With 26 eyes to choose from, hopefully soon Amaretto will bring out more new Confection coats.
I've included a few candy recipes for you to try for yourself. And why wait for Christmas to enjoy these sweet treats?
chocolate chips/12 oz. bag
The amounts depend on how much you want to make, I use a small electric coffee grinder to grind the coconut smaller but you dont have to.
Melt the chocolate chips in a metal bowl or double boiler
add half teaspoon of mint flavoring
add enough coconut to make a thick dryish consistency, press teaspoonfuls onto sheet of waxed paper on a cookie sheet. Put in fridge to set, be sure to make extra, to make up for the ones you eat before you put the tray in the fridge.
Peppermint bark--no baking required
What to do with any leftover candy canes?? I know, make more candy!
You need 16 oz. of white chocolate
6 medium size candy canes
wax paper or foil
Crush the candy canes to small bits
melt white chocolate in large metal bowl or double boiler
add 1/2 tsp mint extract
combine candy canes with chocolate
Spread mix out evenly and thinly on wax paper, set in cold place, and let set. when set break into pieces, and pig out!
