Sally's Candy Addiction

First up– I have my first local cooking class this week at the Wayne Art Center. We’ll be cooking toffee and making fudge recipes from Sally’s Candy Addiction. I’ll definitely post pictures. And I’ll definitely embarrass myself. The event has sold out, but we’re adding another one in February so check their schedule so you can buy a ticket (which includes a book!).

SBA is going across the country!

Check my book tour page for exact times/locations.

October 3rd, 4th, and 6th– I’ll be signing books at events in Philadelphia. Would love to meet you if you’re local! Then I’m off to Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, and Denver. Soon after that: Trenton, DC, Portsmouth, Boston, and NYC. Then I’ll be in Baltimore, St. Louis, Chicago, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland. Then I’ll sleep for 10 straight days before visiting all of you in Texas! And it all starts over again in February with I see you all in San Francisco and San Diego.

My cookbook will be sold at all of these locations. You can bring your own copy or you can buy it there. I’ll be doing candy making demos at some of these locations. Most of them are free, but some are ticketed. And if so, I noted that on my book tour page.

I’ll be sharing photos and recaps on my blog, instagram, and snapchat (sallysbakeblog) so you can follow along on this crazy adventure. I’ll also be sharing photos from the tour on my photography blog. If you have your copy of Sally’s Candy Addiction, make sure you snap a photo of it and upload it to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #sallyscandyaddiction. And if you make any of the recipes, please tell me about it on any of my social medias. That’s the BEST part of writing a cookbook! Hearing that you are making my food.

Candy Addiction Recipes

Sally's Candy Addiction Peanut Butter Fudge

What else? I think that’s it. I can’t think straight! Oh, have you made homemade apple cider yet? Because you can make it in your slow cooker and your house will smell like Fall all day long. Plus, it’s yum.

Come back tomorrow for a new pumpkin cookie recipe! Oh yes.


  1. What a big week for you! I can’t imagine what you are feeling. Hopefully my copy will come quick. I will do my best to see you in San Diego.  I am looking forward to your cookie recipe.

  2. So happy you’re coming to San Diego! That’s awesome! Best of luck on all your travels and events, Sally!

  3. Don’t worry, Sally, I’m sure you’ll do great on the cooking class. It’s like riding a bike – when you get on it, it’s just about the instinct. The same is with cooking – when you see the ingredients before you, you’ll forget everything else and you’ll start speaking from your heart.
    Congratulations on the book, can’t wait to get my hands on it!


  4. Can’t wait to see you Sunday! Still want to grab dinner with the hubbies after? Let me know! 🙂 xoxo

  5. How exciting! I love all the pictures, as usual. That looks like a great addidition to any cookbook collection 🙂 Good luck with the tour and everything! 😀

  6. I love hearing about what’s going on in your life Sally and I can’t wait to hear about your book tour! Wish I still lived State side so I could go to one of your book signings! Maybe I’ll catch the next one, good luck!

  7. SO excited for you Sally! You’re going to have so many fun adventures over the next couple months 🙂 also, very excited to get to meet you this weekend!!! CONGRATS on book #2

  8. I’m so happy for you, Sally! I’m looking forward to meeting you, and I hope that your travels are tons of fun 😀 What is poor Jude going to do without his parents??

  9. Wow – woman on the MOVE! So cool! Saturday was a really fun day for me – I got your bookplate in the mail (woo! Thanks so much!) AND got shipping notice that I will have your new cookbook tomorrow! (woo times two!) And….I made my billionth batch of your Chewy Chocolate Chip cookies for some gals in Santa Fe…and made mini loaves of your banana bread (I used the Butterscotch Banana Bread from your book but used chopped up Hershey bar and semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of nuts) My house smelled like a bakery yesterday. 🙂 Congratulations to you!!!

  10. Congrats! Looking forward to the pics of your class! Have fun! 🙂

  11. Congrats Sally, these are such exciting times for you! 😀 And good luck for spending all those weeks away from home, I’m sure Kevin and Jude will miss you a lot!

  12. I was out of town this weekend and came back to your new book on my door step!!!! So excited to read it after work today 🙂 🙂 

  13. I ordered your book (e-book version for my tablet) from Amazon this past weekend and it was delivered to me immediately. Unfortunately I couldn’t spend a lot of time with it this past weekend. But I hope to go through it very soon and write a review for you on Amazon. It looks great (as usual) and I can’t wait to start my candy experimentations. That’s just another thing this old novice baker has yet to try!

  14. Hi Sally!  I was SO excited when they delivered your new cookbook to me on Sunday afternoon!  Spent a good portion of the day enjoying both the recipes and photos – feels like I am a cookbook junkie – and your second cookbook is an absolute treasure!  Already tagging the recipes we’re going to try – and all six of my children have tagged the ones that they want me to make as well.  This could be good bribery material!  Thanks again – the wait was well worth it!

  15. Can’t wait to meet you in Houston!

  16. Hello Sally, can’t wait for your new book to come out so I can look at all of the new recipes you’ve developed. I was wondering, is there the possibility of you coming to England for a book signing? Or holding competitions also open to the United Kingdom? I’d love to meet you and get your autograph some day!
    Congratulations on the new cookbook, can’t wait for mine to come in the post!!


  17. I’ll be seeing you at Fante’s Kitchen Shop! I can’t wait to meet you!

  18. I can’t wait to meet you in Seattle! So so excited.

  19. I’m still bummed that there’s no Atlanta book signing date. Maybe someday. Enjoy your book tour Sally. I’m sure it will be lots of fun!

  20. Congratulations Sally! Love baking all of your recipes. I am confident your second book will be a success. Very disappointed you are not making a book tour stop in the true South (Atlanta). I think loyal fans would travel from Alabama, Florida, and South Carolina to see you. Oh well…..good luck with the tour.

  21. Woohoo!!! Congratulations Sally! Cannot wait to try these new recipes 🙂 
    P.S. do you think that there’s a chance you may make a stop in Canada in the future?

  22. Can’t wait to meet you in Chicago!  And can’t wait to get the cookbook and delve into the world of candy making (a world I’ve been a little bit afraid of).  I’m going to order the candy making tools you suggested to prepare! 🙂

  23. A. I got my cookbook in the mail yesterday–SUNDAY! (Yay for my upgrade to Amazon Prime just in time for my pre-order to make it to me in record time!) After doing our happy dance, my girls and I ran over to the couch to flip through it and see what we want to make. Can’t wait to get started! It’s beautiful. Congrats and thanks again for all your hard work!!!

    B. Yes! I made the cider yesterday with all our fresh-picked orchard apples. It tastes like fall in a mug! Yay for fall. Yay for cookbooks. Yay for Sally’s Baking Addiction!!!

    I remarked to my mom on Friday night that somewhere in the course of the past five years, I’ve become the kind of person who gets legitimately excited for the release of cookbooks. I couldn’t be happier about that!

  24. My copy was JUST delivered by Amazon. So I’m totally leaving work at lunch to get it from the mail and bring it back to work!! That’s how excited I am!! 🙂 Can’t wait to see you in Texas!!!! Enjoy this week!

    PS – I made your lemon blueberry cake over the weekend and won first place at the State Fair of Texas. Best moment of my life – but I owe you all the credit for the recipe. Thank you for everything that you do!

  25. SO excited for you. You’re such an inspiration! 🙂

  26. Woo hoo, I received your book today. I could not wait to flip through it. The pictures are so yummy. Can’t wait to try out these recipes. Amazing job Sally. I am even loving the raised font on the cover so cool. Now the only problem I foresee is which recipe to try first. Such a good problem to have. Thank you so much for all your hard work.

  27. I just replied to the April 20th blog by mistake but …. Love , love, love the new cookbook and can’t wait to try everything. Also surprised no one else commented on your dedication. I feel so honored about it. Thanks from your dedicated blog reader, Sue V.

    • I saw it on that post! Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on my new cookbook, especially the dedication.

      Very, very much appreciated Susan!

  28. Many, many congratulations Sally on what is sure to be another hugely successful book!!  I spent sooo many hours yesterday pouring over each and every recipe, front to back, making sure to read all the helpful hints!  My hubby has even put post its on the ones he wants me to try out first. I checked the pantry today and there are only a couple of ingredients I need to fill in to get started. Hands down the peanut butter cups are first, no contest!!  Then I don’t know if I’m game to jump right to those salted caramels topped with chocolate, or if I want to start with something less challenging?  There are spiced nuts and bark calling my name too!!  Thank you as always for your enthusiasm, inspiration, your thoughtful directions, and how your love of all things baking/candy making just shine through in such a sincere way for all your fans!  I can’t wait to meet you and get my book signed!!  Blessings.

    • Well, this just makes the day even better Chelle! Thank you for such a thoughtful comment- just read it twice with a huge smile on my face. PB cups are a great place to start. For the caramels– make sure you read the chapter intro as well as all my candy making tips in the beginning of the book. This will greatly help you get started with a more detailed recipe. I’ve heard from readers (who are not candy makers in the slightest– no experience whatsoever) and they’ve had easy success with those caramels. You can handle it!

  29. I’m anxiously waiting for the USPS truck to drop off my Candy Addiction book! Can’t wait to meet you in Seattle. See ya soo. 😉

  30. I got my copy of Candy Addiction today and it is gorgeous! I can’t wait to try the brittles and the fudges. It’s a shame Canadian bookstores weren’t very responsive, though. I would have loved to see you in Toronto!

    • If you have any spots in mind in Toronto– let me know. Or let THEM know! I have a huge readership in Toronto and I’d love to visit.

  31. I wish I was meeting you in Minneapolis! BUT it’s parents weekend at my college so I can’t! I’ll be there in spirit though and definitely next time! 🙂 

  32. I live in Illinois, not too far from Schaumburg. I tried to check out when you give the demonstrations there but couldn’t get any info about time or price. Would love to go. Thanks, Michelle

  33. Congratulations to your new book, Sally! I looooove your blog, followed your blog since quite some time. It is my go-to baking blog when I am looking for a delicious recipe that delivers on all sides. So far I baked lots of cookies ( chocolatechip, funfetti cookies) also your muffins as well as cakes for birthdays. They are always a huge success!  Thanks so much for your great recipes! 


  34. Congrats! That is so exciting! You should totally add Atlanta to your list at some point just saying 😉 

  35. Hey Sally,

    I just received your new book and everything looks yummy! I tried to do some chai tea truffles last night but it didn’t work out really well. My ganache is very soft, in a way like nutella texture, it’s impossible to roll it because of it’s liquid texture. Still tasty when I spoon it though. I tried to make half of the recipe and that’s the reason I believe it didn’t work out. But I’m going to make it again and this time I won’t change the portion size

    • Hey Amber! Never halve candy recipes (I mention that in the book intro! Sounds like you just read it though!). And be sure to use heavy cream if you are not already– you need very thick consistency cream. And make sure you are sufficiently chilling the ganache. It will still be a little soft, but manageable to roll.
