I woke up this morning thinking about candy. This is not as rare of an occurrence as I would like to say it is, but today was special. I wanted to make candy.
A number of years ago I made candy myself as part of my Christmas presents that year. I made a selection of chocolates. It's been a while since I've done that for Christmas, but I did make some for Chris earlier this year.
I just find the holidays the prime time for candy. Well, I suppose most people do. I've been thinking about making something fun myself, but I don't have any fancy equipment like a candy thermometer or candy molds or other stuff like that. I leave the more delicate operations to people who know what they are doing in the kitchen. (Like my sister-in-law, she made this delicious fudge last time I was over there. Holy cow, man. It was amazing)
Anyhow, point being, I'm really tempted to make something fun but fairly straightforward. I have a busy day ahead, so not sure how much time I'll have, but let's keep our fingers crossed...
Do you make candy yourself? What's your go-to recipe?
