Sweet Confections: Beautiful Candy to Make at Home

by Nina Wanat

If you've ever thought you'd like to make your own marshmallows or caramel one day but thought it sounded difficult, this book is for you!  The photographs inspire you to try them all, and the instructions are written so simply you can't believe it will turn out right--but it does.  There is a very good section on how to correctly temper chocolate, and recipes with fantastic instructions for cookie dough fudge, Turkish delights, meringues, bark, making your own vanilla extract from scratch, even how to roll truffles.  The author also has a blog  which has great stories and helpful tips.

Happy candy making!
