This past weekend I made homemade candy, which is probably my favorite thing to make in the kitchen. I tried a couple of old recipes and a couple of new ones. One of the new ones was out of a candy book that I have and unfortunately it was a total disaster. It was supposed to be similar to a 3 Musketeers but was more like chocolate taffy. The taste was great because I used my super delicious Mexican cocoa powder but the texture was way off. I was soooo disappointed in the recipe but I’m not going to give up! I think that is what I like about candy making, it can be a challenge and it’s fun to figure out why recipes went wrong and what to do right or change the next time.
Here is a small collection of candy recipes that I’d love to try this Christmas, from simple to a little bit more complicated. The homemade Snickers bar and Coffee Toffee are totally calling my name…actually they ALL look good! Which one would you like to try??
