My husband and I are celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary on the 21st of June.
We have done a very good job of following the traditional gift ideas for each of the anniversaries thus far.
(don't ask about the leather year- 'cause im not tellin Wink )

for year six i have a choice of candy or iron.  my budget is about $100
I was thinking of getting him a nice cast iron skillet or dutch oven-  but we do have one already that we dont use all that much.
Candy is a great choice for him.  He is a candy bandit.
he likes nostalgic candies.  penuche fudge.  dark chocolate.
i was thinking  of a cotton candy machine-  but i couln't find one under $100 with decent reviews.
and gourmet candies i could order seem very spendy for something i should be making myself.

any cute ideas out there?  something thats not too too difficult or time consuming, but has a wow factor. 
and maybe even a naughty factor!
i'll peruse the boards here and see what strikes me as well.  but i really wanted to get the best crafty brains i know of, on the job. you guys are SO SMART!

other fun facts about my husband
hes 37.  hes from new england, but we currently live in Utah. (he misses the ocean and all other things new england. a recipe using FLUFF would be a plus! Smiley)
he's burly. hes a beatles fan.
we have a 3 year old son.
he is a very carnivorous and creative cook himself, and likes to introduce meat into sweets.  he once made a bacon cake, and clam cookies.

anyway-  thanks for reading-  and thinking about this quandary.
i look forward to your ideas.

This may not be helpful  Smiley but maybe you could make a gift basket for him with a combination of candy and dirty/sexy things (like those candy necklaces Smiley and maybe tie sexy panties on the top of the basket as a sortof bow (of course you wear them later). Maybe make some  maple syrup taffee to throw in there?? Not sure what is close to you but Cracker Barrell has lots of old fashioned candies and World Market has unique candies. I also found this website that has a "bacon candy":

I LOVE it.  thanks jl409
we do have a sexy little shop downtown that might have some naughty candies that i could put with some homemade stuff.
and that meat candy recipe is OUTRAGEOUS.  it sounds intriguing and a little bit nauseating, and i think its absolutely PERFECT.  Tongue
I also noticed Pinkie_poh's candy sushi- http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=308136.0   i was thinking instead of rice cereal treats i might try some almond joy attempt. http://www.recipelink.com/cookbooks/2002/0452269954_3.html
hmmm  lots to think about.
good thing i am off work for the summer.  i think im gonna need some time.

You could also get him a chocolate fountain.  They actually sell for about $100 for a good one.  The chocolate for them isn't real cheap, but you can make some awesome things with it.

And you can make your own fun with it. Wink

I know it's after your anniversary, but bacon bark would be great.  Temper milk or a combo of milk and dark chocolate, stir in very finely diced, very crispy bacon, spread thinly on parchment paper and sprinkle lightly with smoked salt.  When set, break into pieces.

Hmm.  It did when I tested it, but it doesn't now for me either.  I'll upload and put it here.

Holy crap!  I don't think I've ever seen so much food all in one place.  Some of that stuff looks like it should be illegal.  Some of it looks sinfully delicious.

Thanks for the link.  And thanks for posting the pic of bacon bark.  I've got to try this.

 Grin It was awesome!  You should come next year.  My favorite was LC's BBQ, the Smoke N Choke, and the pulled pork on cornbread.
