DIY Project: How to Make the Golden Nuggets Candy from the Gold Rush BBQ

One of my favorite elements on the dessert table for the Gold Rush BBQ was the battered pie tin full of edible golden nuggets.

Want to make your own?  They're incredibly easy, and were such a hit on the dessert table!  Check out the full tutorial in Festivities magazine, Issue One.

 

These aren't just for a gold mining theme.  How about pirate's booty?  A golden anniversary?  King Midas?  A chest of edible gold (to go along with faux frankincense and myrrh) at Christmastime?  So many possibilities!  What would you use this idea for?
