Brittles, Barks, and Bonbons delivers on its promise of delicious recipes for quick and easy candy.

I had been a little intimidated about making candy, but the author makes it sound relatively easy with clear and detailed instructions. She also shares several tips that I haven't seen in other candy recipes (such as that beet sugar crystallizes less predictably than cane sugar, and that it is not necessary to wipe down the sides of the pan with a pastry brush when caramelizing sugar).

The author provides a brief overview of ingredients and the few necessary pieces of equipment (which are likely to be in most kitchens with the possible exception of a clip-on candy thermometer which I found for 99 cents at a discount store). That is followed by candy tips and techniques.

This book has recipes from melting chocolate and making bars to more timely recipes, but even the simple ones were great for Christmas gift giving and easy for the novice to prepare. I wrapped the peppermint bark in celophane decorated bags from the dollar store and got rave reviews. Also made the chocolate marshmallow pecan barks and they were incredible. Next, I want to make chocolate covered pretzels. The hardest part is not eating too much!

Used a few recipes from the book so far and they are clear and concise. Make sure you have a candy thermometer before attempting most of the recipes. Very good for a person just starting with candy making.

I absolutely love this recipe book!!! I have been looking for candy making recipes that are simple to make and contain ingredients that I already in my pantry. I can not wait to try these out for parties and holidays.
