Candy Collection

I'm reorganizing my website, you'll see a few repeat posts popping up here over the next few hours!

Thanks for coming along on Candy Challenge 2011!!!  I can't believe what a year it has been and how much sugar, corn syrup and chocolate I have gone through!  While the year is over, my candy-making adventure has only begun.  This year has really taught me that you can make anything yourself, you don't have to resort to buying it from the store.  I have several requests from you all to complete and a new candy cookbook to delve into, so look forward to new candy recipes in the new year.  Haven't tried making candy yourself?  Give it a go this year, it's totally worth it.































If you want to make your own candy, the following tools with come in handy!
1a. Candy Thermometer (makes boiling sugar a lot easier)
1b. Digital Candy Thermometer (My new favorite!)
2. Heavy pot with tall sides
3a. Parchment paper
3b. Silpats
5. Cookie sheets
6. Candy molds (they are super cheap, between $2-3 a piece!)
8. Stand mixer or Hand mixer (you'll develop some mean biceps using a hand mixer!)
9. Gloves (you can get these at Michaels or other craft store)
10. Candy dipping tools
