Making rock candy sheets don’t really take days to complete like the rock candy crystals. There’s not much chemistry stuff going on in the process that calls for yet another kitchen science session.
There’s just so much you can do with chocolates. I’ve posted several chocolate recipes the past weeks, but I just can’t seem to get enough. From making dark chocolates, making dark chocolate sweeter, how to make milk chocolate from dark chocolate, how to melt chocolates with coconut oil, to how to make hard chocolate coating from cocoa powder.
I was making dipping chocolates in a client’s home kitchen when she asked me something I get a lot from different people: does melted chocolate and butter harden? This is a common question most beginners or first-timers have. It’s a very legit question, I might add, because I was guilty of this. I learned my lesson the hard way.
The maple candies are always a hit with the kids. I mostly like the creamy and nutty ones – because I love peanut brittle, remember? If you haven’t read my two peanut brittle recipes, please check them out as well. I have a microwave peanut brittle recipe and a corn syrup-free stovetop version you might want to try.
