If you’ve yet to hear about The Sweet Swap, it’s everything that’s right in this world. It’s about community. It’s about connecting with people and sharing. It’s about anticipation and surprises. It’s about raising some money for charity to do a little good in this world. It’s a Kris Kringle for confections.

It’s about sweets. Lots of sweets. Sweets lovingly prepared by food enthusiasts from around Australia. Sweets that come in all shapes and sizes. From the simple to the sublime. From the classics to the avant garde. No matter what it is, no matter where it comes from, it’s all good.

Read on for a recap of The Sweet Swap experience and a recipe for some amazing dark chocolate salted butterscotch truffles.
