Today I hold Sally’s Candy Addiction finished manuscript.
My heart is racing, my fingers are shaking, and I’m full of emotion as I type. This has been the tallest mountain I’ve ever hiked, the longest race I’ve ever ran, the most challenging test I’ve ever taken, and the biggest project I’ve ever completed.
6 months. 200 pages. 49,000 words. 4,000 photos edited down to 300. 131 test recipes shrank down to 75 winners. And those were tested too.
Tempering chocolate, step photos, gram measurements, cooking brittle, decoding toffee, how to dip candies, make ahead instructions, chocolate dipped everything, candy apples, 9 truffles, 10 fudges, cake pops (from scratch!), bark, pralines, buttercreams, peanut butter galore, taffy, 2 kinds of marshmallows, 2 caramel corn recipes, caramel apples, caramel turtles, caramel for dipping, honey brittle, buckeyes, clusters, rum balls, sweet snacks, and more. Oh, and a chapter home to 14 recipes baked with candy including milky way cake, deep dish candy pie, cupcakes, cheesecake, cookies, homemade ice cream and more.
I’m thrilled to share this manuscript with the world on September 29th 2015. Thank you for your support and excitement.
You can preorder on Amazon.
Now, LET’S FREAKIN’ CELEBRATE.
