I had a Candy Making for Mother’s Day class today. Candy is a lot of fun to work with, it can get a little messy but the clean up is easy. We made the maraschino mice I mentioned in my first blog post as well as chocolate dipped pretzels rods, dipped strawberries and well let’s just say, we did a lot of dipping because there isn’t anything that doesn’t taste good covered in chocolate! Except maybe roast beef.
We made lollipops and bon bons as well as clusters. Those are my favorite (after the mice of course). The clusters are rich and crunchy and are unique each time I make them.
It’s a great class and the students always leave happy. I think the sampling helps a little too. Haha!
