Candy shop

Sophie has been busy making candy. From left to right:

Root beer, mint, anise, maple, tangerine and lemon.

Next up: butter rum, raspberry and cinnamon.

She's also making lollipops which are turning out very nicely. She can do three large lollipops from each batch of candy, leaving the quantity shown in the lemon drop jar for lozenges. Each batch takes about 45 minutes from start to finish, including clean-up.

    Incredible! And butter rum's my favorite - good choice! ;-)

  2. At some point, would you consider posting a few recipes? I'd love to try making some with my kids.

  3. She's using this recipe with a variety of colours / flavours. We have a peppermint humbug recipe that we may use instead for peppermint which includes butter, but so far this is all she's used. If you get the temperatures right it's pretty straightforward. I'll try to post a series of photos sometime soon showing the various steps.
