The Ultimate Candy Book 
For kids of all ages—a collection of over 700 creative candy recipes for Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter, or anytime!

Bruce Weinstein knows that candy is dandy! Having made a name for himself with his successful first book in the Ultimate series, The Ultimate Ice Cream Book and his follow-up smash, The Ultimate Party Drink Book, his new The Ultimate Candy Book is the confection cookbook for every home cook. Just in time for the upcoming holidays, Bruce Weinstein celebrates the world of sweets in all their glorious forms—from crunchy to chewy, from lollipops to chocolate truffles, this book is a treat for all. Whether you're a seasoned candy-maker who owns all the implements of the trade, or perhaps an aspiring novice with a big sweet tooth, The Ultimate Candy Book has the recipes and methods for you to "WOW!" your family and friends.

Forget store-bought candy—Bruce shares recipes for hundreds of homemade pleasures with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions. Children can join in on the fun with simple delights such as Chocolate Lollipops and Raisin Clusters, while adults can make the more sophisticated Pistachio Brittle or Chocolate Cherries. Either way this book will bring out the "kid" in everyone. Create childhood favorites like peanut butter cups, chewing gum, and gummy bears. Craft your very own Glass Candy Christmas Ornaments to hang on your tree, pipe Chocolate Spider Webs for a scary Halloween touch or serve your honey some Meringue Kisses on Valentine's Day. Whatever the occasion Bruce Weinstein's hundreds of candy recipes (plus numerous variations) promise you sweet inspiration and sweet dreams.
