    Who doesn't love homemade candy?!? If you have a serious sweet tooth, this is the book for you. From toffee to pralines, taffy to buckeyes and truffles to fudge, this book has it covered! Have a love for history?--host a taffy pull or make some old-fashioned horehound candy! Crazy over fudge?--you probably haven't seen this many kinds of fudge in a long time! (Who knew they had banana, orange, lemon-white and even PINEAPPLE fudge!). There's over 50 pages--many with more than one recipe--of fudge alone!! Glazed nuts, popcorn balls, lollipops, divinity, s'mores and brittle all make appearances in this amazing book.

    This book is a little light on photos, but the recipes are clear and easy to follow. I love that at the top of each recipe you can find the skill level, how much it makes and equipment needed. That was a very nice touch. This is a great book packed with mouthwatering goodness, and I highly recommend it. What are you waiting for?!? Let's make candy!!

    I received a copy of this book from Robert Rose Inc. for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
