Sally's Candy Addiction Book

I forget what a tidy kitchen looks like. I keep Nestle Toll House in business. I’ve accidentally gone out in public with chocolate smears on my face, twice. My dishwasher is on constant. I made 19 batches of caramel until I landed on the perfect combination of ingredients. I have 4 back up batteries for my camera and approximately 36 lbs of sugar in my pantry.

Because of your support, friendship, and encouragement I decided to write and photograph another cookbook for you. Sally’s Candy Addiction. 75+ recipes for fudge, truffles, toffee, caramel, chocolate covered everything, brittle, bark, plus two chapters of recipes baked WITH your favorite candy (that’s why I asked you!).

Coming Fall 2015. Yes, this year!

    I like making candy more than I like baking (I think…that’s a really hard choice!), so I’m super excited about your next cookbook. All of those pictures are gorgeous and look like a wonderful dream…mess and all! Congratulations!

      Thank you Julie!

    Oh girl, I had no idea you were doing another cookbook and I’m super happy for you. Not to mention how excited you’re writing a cookbook based on candies alone.

    I’m sure you know me and my massive candy addition. Candy makes the world go around for me. I can’t wait until this one is released. If I were in ths US, I’d probably be waiting first in line at the bookshop for it too.

    Yay! Super proud of you and all you’ve accomplished. 🙂

      Thank you Lisa!! xoxo

    Cookbooks must be so fun to write – especially candy ones! I hope all goes well! Your photography is amazing and your posts seriously make me hungry! Good luck and I can’t wait to see your future posts!

    I’m so excited for you!

    Yay! You GOT this 🙂 Im so happy for you! I’m probably one of the few teenagers who have read every single one for your blog posts <3

    I’d love to know how you cut your fudge SO perfectly.

    I can’t make such beautiful neat squares, even when I cool it.


    • Sally on March 2, 2015 at 3:55 pm

      Very sharp knife, very quick cuts, and rinse/wipe your knife clean between each cut.

      • Amy on March 2, 2015 at 7:01 pm

        Thanks!! I’ll be sure to practice this 🙂

    Where can I purchase your first cookbook? I just found your blog. The recipes look wonderful and I can’t wait to try them. Thanks for sharing.

    wow, you even know how to make messy kitchen or sink look gorgeous and nice! I love your work, you are truly an artist 😉

  9. Karen on March 8, 2015 at 10:05 am

    I love to make candy, but I can never get the chocolate on the truffles to look nice. You make it look easy! Is it? I am looking forward to your new book.

    • Sally on March 8, 2015 at 12:27 pm

      It IS easy, once you get the hang of it. The right ratio of cream to chocolate makes all the difference. It helps make rolling easier.

    Where is the recipe for Nutella Truffles?

    • Sally on March 9, 2015 at 4:15 pm

      Hi Denise! These candy recipes, including the truffles, are in the new cookbook I discuss here. It will be out in the fall. Thank you!
