Make your own sweet treats
Are you looking for something fun to do on the next rainy day? Why not try your hand at making candy? Its fun, relatively easy, delicious, and it makes a special treat for your friends, family, co-workers, or that special someone. All you need are a few simple ingredients, a candy thermometer, and a few candy molds.
Why make your own candy?
One of the best things about making your own sweet treats is that you control everything. If you want nuts, you get nuts. If you want creamy caramel centers, you can have them. If you need low carb, sugar free, or gluten free candy, you can have it. Yes, you can have your candy and eat it too.
Whatever your tastes and diet or calorie restrictions you can design your own candy coated bliss. Not to mention that making your own candy is cheaper than buying it from upscale candy stores. And giving homemade candies to friends, family, or that special someone is another creative and sweet way to say you care.
Shapes and molds, and designs oh my!
When you make your candy, you can also decide what it looks like. One of the easiest candies to make is chocolate, and you can find chocolate candy molds in a huge array of shapes, sizes, and designs. If you’re looking to create a sweet treat for a baby shower, you can pick out some adorable chocolate rattles molds. Or if you’re looking for something simple and classic you can pick out roses or little chocolate gift boxes.
