    Book Description
    From Library Journal
    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).

His chocolate matzo makes the deprivations of the Passover season much more bearable.... read more

    Book Description

    Bruce Weinstein, author of The Ultimate Ice Cream Book, has the answer with this collection of confections. Try his rich chocolate truffles or any one of a dozen variations; sweet, chewy caramel with almonds or coconut; buttery pralines with crunchy pecans; or light-as-air divinity, nougat, and marshmallow.

    Craft your own candy Christmas ornaments to hang on your tree, pipe chocolate spiderwebs for a scary Halloween touch, or whip up meringue kisses for your honey on Valentine's Day. Bruce even offers step-by-step instructions for creating your own homemade versions of classic favorites like peanut butter cups, gummy bears, and chewing gum.

    If you have a sweet tooth or know someone who does, The Ultimate Candy Book -- filled with hundreds of year-round treats and gift-giving ideas -- is ultimately satisfying.
