Have You Ever Made Candy?

Pin it button big

Candy thermometers and toffee pans come out of the cupboard this time of year as even those of us without much experience at candy-making give it a try in the name of holiday spirit and sugar. Homemade candy can sound very intimidating, but there are many easy ways in, with gradual steps between no-cook fudge and spun-sugar masterpieces.

The photo is of Crunchy Mint Chocolate Fudge. It's an entry-level recipe for sure; it doesn't even require real cooking. You just melt condensed milk and chocolate chips together and stir in crushed peppermint candies.

Have you ever made homemade candy? Any plans to attempt something new this year?
