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!

I made three of your recipes this weekend when my daughter and her friends came home, and my son told me the chocolate chip cookies were “amazing – can you make them again mom because I’m gonna eat them all here soon” haha! And the sugar cookies are wonderful with almond flavoring – they disappeared ridiculously fast! I hope you are able to come near Springfield or Quincy, Illinois on your tour!
