Candy Gift Set Giveaway!

Awww yeah! It’s February 1st, so you know what that means: it’s time for Valentine’s everything. I have some fun desserts I’m excited to share soon, but before we get to that, let’s talk about candy. Specifically, let’s talk about how I can hook you up with some tools for making your loved ones some awesome homemade candy this Valentine’s Day.


As you’re probably sick of hearing about, I wrote a candy cookbook last year. My publisher, Quarry, has put together a candy prize pack to get everyone in the Valentine’s spirit, and they’ll be giving away two of them!


This sweet prize includes: an autographed copy of The Sweet Book of Candy Making, a candy thermometer, heart-shaped candy molds, and some cute heart-adorned treat bags.

To make things extra-fun, we’ve decided to add a Pinterest component to this giveaway. I don’t know about you, but I have a slight Pinterest problem…as in, I think I’m going to browse around for 5 minutes, and 45 minutes later I emerge from a Pinterest coma, dreaming of cupcakes and hand-woven scarves. It’s a weird place, but oh so fun. (And by the way, if we’re not Pinterest friends yet, what are you waiting for? Hit me up and say hi!)


Update: The winners have been chosen! Congratulations to Carolsue and Brie F!
