Weinstein's book, in the same style as his Ultimate Ice Cream Book, offers 100 or so basic recipes for delectable candies plus variations on the themeDmany recipes, in fact, include close to a dozen versions in all. The candies are
organized into the three general categories of the subtitle and range from Fudge-in-a-Minute to Turkish Taffy (in grape, peach, and even fig flavors) to Hazelnut Brittle. There's even a recipe for homemade chewing gum. With its abundance of recipes, this
is a good companion to Carole Bloom's several less-ambitious candy-making titles (e.g., Truffles, Candies, & Confections, Crossing Pr., 1996).
