CANDY MAKING WORKSHOP
$55 / Nov 29
Every fall my mom transformed half our home into a candy making factory pumping out treats and delights of all shapes and varieties. She’d bundle these candies into delightful homemade gifts and give them out to everyone she knew. And I mean everyone. Our teachers, principles, coworkers, bosses, neighbors, friends, parents of friends… even the postman! The candy was the hit of the family reunion and many recipes were shared and gathered and fine tuned over the years. All would delight in the treasure of the lovingly made delectable candy and in the way in which she packaged it – jars turned into Santa faces or snuggled inside little handmade Santa Boots.
I’ve taken on this tradition, making some of my favorites (sorry Candied Orange Peel, you didn’t make the cut) to share with the people I care about. And now we’re opening up to pass this knowledge onto you! During this 3-hour Candy Making Workshop you’ll be learning to make a few of these treasured family recipes: Peanut Brittle, Millionaires (caramel, pecans & chocolate, OH MY!), and Fudge.
After this workshop you’ll leave have:
– A bundle of the candy we make to share – or keep for yourself 🙂
– Recipes we used to make or adapt to suit ones preferences
– List of must-have kitchen tools needed to succeed in making candy
– Experience making candy so you can make in your own kitchen safely and with confidence!
– Additional recipes that we didn’t have time to make (even the Candied Orange Peel if you insist)
Felt Craft for Gifts Workshop ADD ON
Directly after the Candy Making Workshop we’ll head out of the Kitchen into the Art Room for a Master Class in crafting the Santa Jars and Boots if you’re interested in taking that as well. Samples will be available to look at,. We’ll go over the pattern, adapting it to the desired size if necessary and walking through all the steps of making them, with the opportunity for each participant to make one of each throughout the workshop.
Candy Making Workshop not required to take the Felt Craft for Gifts Workshop, but as an add-on class you get a 20% discount on the Gifts Workshop.
