Sugar Knife Confections Are Twice as Vice

Boozy sweets for grown-ups

Way back when, all you needed was a solid stick and bag of store-bought fluffs to get the party started.

Today it requires just a little s’more.

Be the hit of the fire pit with spiked artisan sweets from Sugar Knife. The Oakland-based company’s booze-infused brittle and marshmallows are an adult spin on summer camp indulgences.

Whiskey lover Jenna Keys and fiance Josh Gillespie spent months perfecting the precise procedure (from humidity levels and sugar crystallization to barometric pressure) behind the ideal puff.

The result? Addictive flavors as intoxicating as they are inventive.

Plop Ghost Ride the Whip (pistachios and amaretto) into your cup of joe. Torch Lemonage à Trois (limoncello, lemon zest and juice) on top of vanilla bean cupcakes in lieu of frosting.

Or melt a few Back That Razz Up mallows (raspberries and Chambord) and dollop over ice cream with some of Sugar Knife’s bourbon brittle crushed up.

Just be sure to pass the bowl.

Available at sugarknife.com, $6 and up.
