I am so excited to announce that I’ve partnered with the video production company Craftsy to bring you a class aaaaallll about candy! It’s called Homemade Candy: Fudge, Bars, and More, and it’s all about…homemade candy. (Duh.)

Seriously, though, I am passionate about making homemade candy, and I’m thrilled to have a way to share my recipes and techniques with you. This class covers EVERYTHING you’ll need to know to get started!

It is 7 full lessons, jam-packed with information about working with chocolate, sugar, and much more. If you want to learn to make your own candy at home, you need this class!

For each lesson, I’ll take you through all the steps, explaining any tricky parts, and doing a full demonstration from start to finish. There’s also a comprehensive class booklet with all of the recipes and resources. Here’s just a sampling of what the lessons cover:

  • Tempering Chocolate and Quick Chocolate Candies
  • Ganache and Making Truffles
  • Caramels
  • Marshmallows
  • Mini Chocolate Cups
  • Fudge (Modern + Old-Fashioned)
  • Custom Candy Bars

These Rocky Road Candy Bars are just one of the recipes covered in the final lesson. That marshmallow! That chocolate!

The class is rated 5 stars on Craftsy, and has hundreds of happy students enrolled! Here’s a sampling of feedback from students who have completed the course:

I purchased the book “The Sweet Book of Candy Making” last fall and love it. Now I’ve found this class! Instructor is fun, knowledgeable, and really does have a passion for candy making. Love, love, love this class.
Lots of different candies and their techniques covered in this class. Elizabeth is very clear and happy through the class, explaining thoroughly and pointing out what to look for to achieve a perfect result.
Most delicious ever! Thank you for the great class. I do hope you teach more. It was nice to learn to make all these yummy candies with things I actually have.
I found so many good tips here in the class! I’m really excited to make some of the things I’ve seen. I would love it if you did another Craftsy class that included using fondant in chocolates and how to make gelee candies. I would buy that class in a heartbeat.

You are a really good instructor and I’m so happy I bought this class.

Thank you for doing this class. The whole class was interesting and I picked up and learned a lot with candy making.

This class is informative, useful, and most of all FUN. You’ll learn a lot, and leave with increased kitchen confidence–not to mention a ton of great new candy recipes to try! Come join me on Craftsy and see how delicious life can be!
