Sally’s Candy Addiction Cookbook Video!

Sally's Candy Addiction for sale today!

(The first time I’m unveiling the finished cover! What do ya think? The cover has recently changed to this and we’re still working on changing it across all the pre-sale vendors.)

The day has FINALLY come!! I’ve been talking about my upcoming cookbook, Sally’s Candy Addiction Cookbook, since January and I’m thrilled to formally share pre-ordering details with you.

Sally’s Candy Addiction Cookbook is my second cookbook. I spent this past October – March writing it. The book is an in-depth adventure into the very exciting world of candy making. With over 75 tested and photographed recipes, how-to pages, tips, and all the chocolate you could ever ask for– my candy cookbook is the perfect sequel to my baking cookbook and it was truly a labor of love to write.

Though my new married name is Quinn, my professional author name is remaining McKenney– for consistency purposes. Between McKenney, Quinn, McKenney Quinn… I have a handful of names right now.

So, uh, just call me Sally.


The Recipes

You’ll be getting 75 completely new and fresh recipes. I find candy is a category often overlooked in the dessert world, but there is no corner of the candy world I do not explore in Candy Addiction. Think: truffles, fudge, taffy, hard candy, caramel, toffee, brittle, candy bars, and more.

In the book you’ll find 7 chapters with the final chapter called Just Add Candy. This final chapter is one all of you bake-aholics and regular readers will love. It’s a chapter full of cookies, cakes, and cupcakes all prepared with candy. Think: Snickers Cheesecake, York Peppermint Patty Cupcakes, Andes Mint Chocolate Cream Pie, Toffee Lover’s Cupcakes, and Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream.

I also teach you how to make southern-style pralines, homemade marshmallows, salt water taffy, candy apples, caramel apples, old fashioned chocolate fudge, and maple walnut fudge. I’m most excited about these Strawberry Buttercreams!

I love them so much that I decided to put them on the cookbook’s cover, alongside Birthday Cake Fudge. DID YOU READ THAT? Birthday Cake Fudge! Birthday Cake Fudge! Like a cake batter chocolate chip cookie… in fudge form.

And I love these Strawberry Buttercreams so much that I decided to shoot a little video. I’ve never shared a video on my blog before (welcome to 2015, Sal) so this is a first!


How can you not smile watching that? The music!

The Strawberry Buttercreams recipe will be in the book– and I can’t wait for you to make them. So hopefully the video got you pumped for strawberry goodness in your future too. Anthony from Five Story Media helped shoot the video. Thanks Anthony!

  3. Heather - Butter & Burlap says:

    Sally! How exciting is this? It’s all happening so fast! But probably not so much during those October-March months when you were up to your ears in candy. I just admire your work so much. You put a lot of thought and effort into each one of your recipes and it shows. You are so knowledgeable in the little details (the baking and chemistry of it all) it really makes all the difference in the taste and quality of the recipe! I just enjoy your blog so much and have learned so much from you. Thank you for all you do!

    1. September feels like forever from now but I know the book will be out before we know it. I think you’re really going to love the candy cookbook Heather– especially if you like to learn about the how’s and why’s of baking/cooking.

  4. Kayle (The Cooking Actress) says:

  15. Susan Venditti says:

    Just preordered the new book but was hoping you would share the strawberry buttercreams with us now. Can’t wait and would love to make them for my daughters bridal shower in May. Best of luck on your new book and I’m sure it will be a success just like your first book. Love it!

    1. Sorry Susan! It’s a recipe exclusive to the book– I wanted to share the video to get everyone excited about that recipe. How about making these key lime truffles instead?

      Or these oreo truffles (and using pink candy melts as a drizzle?)

      1. Thanks Sally, those are great ideas and I think I’ll make both!!

  16. Katelyn @munchie pie says:

    Congrats Sally! I am so excited for you! Also, I love love love your video!

  17. The cover is perfect. It goes with your prior book AND the photograph…well, it has my mouth watering. As do all of the other pictures…but especially that ice cream with candy cups in it…and the fudge….I want all the fudge all the time!

    Congratulations, Sally! It is beautiful and I can’t wait to cook from it!

    (Guilty confession: I made your chocolate chip cookies over the weekend…well, the dough….and that dough still hasn’t made it into the oven yet. So much sampling needed to happen…lol! I think I will have to make bars tonight just to stop my sweet tooth!) Thank goodness it is light enough outside to run again!! I need it!

    1. Sampling cookie dough is a required step in all chocolate chip cookie recipes.

  18. Congratulations! How exciting! #2!!! It looks great!!

  19. Susan Venditti says:

    PS…the new cover is sooooo much better than the original shown on the preorder.Love it !

    1. I know, I love it so much more! The first cover was a temporary cover because this cover took awhile to perfect!

  20. I preordered the book a while ago. So excited.
    Very cute music from the video. 🙂 And like the nail color too! 😉

    1. Good eye Iram, as always. Red doesn’t match anything in the video haha.

  21. I’m from London Ontario Canada!! If you consider anywhere in Canada I and I’m sure many many others would be ecstatic!!!!!!! Toronto maybe?? I would definitely take the day off and make a drive to see you and your candy!!! So excited to get the book. I want to pre order the ebook but am definitely going to wait for the real pages to come out. Your last cookbook was so pretty and easy to follow with tips and BEAUTIFUL pictures so I’m expecting the same if not better from this one! 🙂 thanks for all you do Sally!! I brag about you like you’re family! Xo

    1. You are as sweet as the candy in the book, Toni. I’m unsure about non-US visits but I can certainly double check.

  22. The cover is beautiful! Congratulations!
    p.s. Cute video too. I couldn’t see the entire width of the video though, so the title of the recipe didn’t show up completely and some of the other text was cut off. Maybe it’s just my computer.

  23. Mary Ann @ the beach house kitchen says:

    Awesome Sally! Love the cover! Already pre-ordered! Can’t wait to add it to my cookbook collection! Love the video!!
