About this item

From traditional toffee, fluffy clouds of marshmallow and creamy maple and pecan fudge to sherbet with lolly dippers, the recipes in Sweet Things are the stuff of childhood dreams. Soft, delicately flavored nougat bars, topped with vanilla caramel and covered in chocolate are just big enough for three or four (big) bites and far surpass the shop-bought equivalent. Crisp butterscotch popcorn with just a hint of sea salt is the perfect adult indulgence, a box of Praline Hearts makes a delightful Valentine's Day gift and chocolate-dipped honeycomb is tailor-made for Father's Day. The cookbook encompasses Chocolate, Marshmallows, Fruit, Toffee, Fudge and Caramels, Nougat, Nuts and Honeycomb, and Hard Candy as the six delicious categories for just about every occasion and culinary skill.
