Candy Class

Wanted to let you take a little peak at a Candy making class we has last evening. I had a retail shop for 12 years in the 80ies and early 90ies and candy supplies was our main business, I taught classes 2 or 3 day a week during the fall and winter. When I closed my shop my sister took over the selling of supplies in her general merchandise store. I have continued to make candy every years for the holidays for family and friends, Decided this year to teach again, We had a class yesterday and I thought I would share with you. Had 12 ladies to join us and we had a great class. Making candy and enjoying company.

We made:
chocolate covered cherries
peppermint patties
maple nut
cocoanut bon bons
resses cups
choc, Carmel and nut pretzels
and learned to use choc. molds.

We are going to meet again next Monday to make Carmel, nut and choc, apples. and choc. and peanut butter fudge.

If any of you ladies would like the recipes we use just let me know and I will email them to you direct.
The first two picture shows the set up before we got started, and the others show all the fun we had. Forgot to take a picture after we did all the choc. dipping. Will try to get it next time.
Hope you are having a great week. Love to hear from you.
