Sadly, most of the candy involves dairy and as I get older, dairy bothers me more and more. My two little guys have some issues too, so good news for you! I’m giving this book away to one lucky winner.
I did try my hand at lollipops. Despite the beautiful step by step photos and very clearly written instructions, I cooked the syrup a little too long (making it yellow) and managed to give myself a lovely little burn blister! They turned out a little wonky in shape and I ended up ditching my lollipop efforts and finished with broken glass. I was too distracted by other stuff and did not give it the focus it needed.
Anyway, I am still happy that I tried and the candy was tasty with peppermint flavoring. We added sprinkles (like seen here) instead of adding food coloring, which I don’t have.
What else is in the book? So much! Sugar candies, fondant, caramels, toffee, fudge, truffles, chocolate candies, marshmallows and fruit and nut candies. There are lost of pictures and tips.
Now, I know I’m a little late with this giveaway, as Christmas quickly approaches. But there is always Valentine’s Day and birthdays and well, you don’t really need a reason to make sweeties, now do you?
Leave a comment by December 24th at midnight and I’ll pick a winner Christmas Day! Good Luck!!!
