tastiest game of scrabble, ever

#42 in an ongoing series of posts celebrating the alphabet.

When last we met in alphabet land, we were contemplating a bunch of luscious letter lollipops in an amazing array of colors and flavors.

Today, behold an exquisitely handcrafted set of edible game tiles and racks, made with pure vanilla extract and real chocolate by Andie’s Specialty Sweets of Los Angeles, California. When I first saw these at BB-Blog, I fairly swooned! These faux wood grained beauties are truly too beautiful to eat, and are a fabulous way to express a broad range of sentiments.

Tiles are 1″ square, racks are regulation size.

Andie’s also makes many other gorgeous candy and cake embellishments. I like their policy of using fair trade organic chocolate, non g.m.o. sugars and starches, and organic flavorings. Their products are also gluten free, vegan friendly, and free of hydrogenated oils, gelatin, and corn syrup.

I love these pastel Peppermint Buttons!

Can be made in any flavor (shades of coral, pink, lemon yellow, mint and sky blue).

And these very cool edible Antique Inspired Chocolate Candy Gears. I imagine architects, engineers, clockmakers and tinkerers would go crazy for them!

Comes in sets of 15

Final Swoon: Candy Vintage Inspired Cameo Necklace! Dynamite idea for bridesmaids gifts, birthdays or Mother’s Day.

Comes with 20″ silk ribbon (flavors: peppermint, lemon sorbet, butter rum and vanilla)

Okay, what’s a five-letter word for delicious?

Check out all the other goodies at Andie’s Specialty Sweets Etsy Shop. They even have some heart-stopping fungi for scientific types ☺. Enjoy!

  1. They are chocolate artists! Those gears! I wanted to make cookies in the shape of chess pieces — I’ll bet they could do a great job with chess in chocolate. (Love the Gregory Peck, btw)


    1. Chess piece cookies? For the Edible Book Festival?

      I’ve always loved Gregory Peck. Besides as Atticus Finch, I loved him in Roman Holiday . . . sigh. SO handsome. And the voice. *swoons*


  2. BUTTONS!!!! TILES!!!! GEARS!!!!


    P.S. – Also: there’s no candy like your EYE CANDY!
    *dies again*


    1. Eye Candy this week as per Linda Ashman’s suggestion. 🙂

      Isn’t it astounding how creative and talented these candy artisans are? Amazing! I also like the gift box the gears come in.


  3. I don’t know where you find this stuff, but those peppermint buttons? Remind me a little of my mother’s homemade tinted peppermints (pink and green) but she just criss-crossed a fork for design. Those are gorgeous! Steampunk fans would also love the gears.


    1. Your mom made her own peppermints? Cool! I’ve never known anyone to do that. Pink and green — my favorite combination!

      Yes, I do think steampunk fans would go for those gears. 🙂


  4. This is amazing Jama. I had no idea people made things like this. I have made those mints. An aunt of my husband’s taught me & I have different kinds of molds too. Fun to do, but scrabble squares-amazing! thanks for telling about these.


    1. Another mint maker! There are quite a few of you out there :). I love discovering new food artists. It truly is amazing what they’re capable of doing.
