During the holidays we want to gather in the kitchen and cook traditional candy. No matter whether you make somecandy chewy caramels, dark truffles, or rich fudge, candy making is a great way to spread the holiday spirit. Candy is usually quite easy to make, you just have to pay attention when cooking with sugar. It's often useful to have a thermometer on hand, that way you know for sure when your butter caramels are done.

Homemade candy also makes nice gifts. Wrap sticky candy in parchment paper and put it in a decorative jar. Sometimes it's nice to include your favorite candy recipe as well.
