The Sweet Book of Candy Making Giveaway

by Laura

I grew up with a mom and grandmas who make candy at the holidays.  I love homemade candies and the holidays are just around the corner.  Making candy at home is a magical process.  It is possible to make delicious, professional- quality candies at home and have fun.  A great resource to make this possible is a new book titled The Sweet Book of Candy Making by Elizabeth LaBau.

Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned candy maker, you will find great recipes and ideas in this book.

  • Candy Making Essentials – all you need to know from equipment, ingredients, and techniques.
  • More than 50 recipes for caramels, fudge, fondant, toffee, and more.
  • Troubleshooting tips for each candy type

I have a copy of The Sweet Book of Candy Making to give away to a lucky RMK reader.  Just leave a comment telling me what homemade candy you would love to make.  You have until Thursday Nov 7 at midnight (MST) to enter.
