What I love about this book is that there is a great mix of serious candy recipes alongside some fast, easy recipes which totally hit the mark. Let's start with the recipes for us beginners. Pretzel M&Ms Puppy Chow - I took this to a party and it was inhaled by adults and children. Total crowd pleaser and took 10 whole minutes to make. Easy Pretzel Toffee - I made this for my neighborhood bake sale and it disappeared. Peanut butter fudge - a classic, super easy recipe that I will be making over and over again during the holidays. As soon as my candy thermometer arrives I will immediately tackle the Chocolate Sea-Salt Caramels and Salted English Toffee. I plan on working my way to up the Saltwater Taffy, which seems slightly intimating, but as always with Sally’s super approachable instructions I’m confident I’ll succeed. The Just Add Candy chapter is an excellent addition. You get some classic Sally recipes, like The Great Milky Way Cake, Whoppers Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Ultimate Peanut Butter Brownies. I’m a total convert to Sally’s cookies recipes and use her base recipe all the time. It goes without saying that you get the same excellent photography and personable tone that you’ll find on Sally’s blog. Highly recommend this book.
This book is going to give me cavities! I had never made candy before reading Sally's Candy Addiction. It seemed too intimidating! While every recipe in the book looks amazing, I decided to get into the fall mood and make Pumpkin Spice Toffee right away. I'm not going to lie - my first batch was not very good! I made the mistake of skipping right to the recipe, ignoring all of Sally's helpful hints that preceded the instructions (don't make my mistake! Read Sally's tips first!) Before attempting the recipe again, I read Sally's instructional chapters, reread the recipe, and took my time. The second batch of toffee was uh-mazing! My husband and I ate all of it within one week. When I made another batch for my sister's birthday party, it was completely devoured within hours - that toffee is addicting! After making the toffee, I tackled a classic chocolate fudge. It was soo creamy and delicous. I can't wait to try out the birthday cake fudge next - it looks so yummy in the photos! Many of these recipes are more difficult than most of Sally's blog recipes - candy requires careful attention to temperature and timing. I'd definitely recommend taking your time and being verrrry careful with these recipes, especially if you're new to candy making like me! Sally also includes a chapter of "Just add candy" recipes, where you add store bought candy to baked treats - perfect if you want to make something quickly, instead of starting from scratch :)
If you want great ideas on how to make candy - or if you want to make any kind of candy at all, this book is the only thing you will ever need. I love how thorough Sally is on every recipe. The step-by-step instructions are great for rookies in the kitchen like me :) This is a book I will use again and again in the kitchen - not to mention the gorgeous, mouth-watering pictures and writing style that make it an enjoyable read!
