Irresistible morsels include classics such as Pear Drops, Peppermint Humbugs, Aniseed Twists, Raspberry Lollipops, Salt-water Taffy and Sugar Mice, as well as lesser-known twists such as Honey and Star Anise Chews, Fondant-stuffed Pecans and Lemon Cream Dreams.

Every recipe is described clearly, with easy-to-follow instructions and an inspiring photograph of the finished confection, making it simple to achieve success. This delightful little book brings the tastes of childhood to the present day, with 20 foolproof recipes for sweet-shop classics. It explains how sugar can be worked in various ways to achieve different effects - for hard, soft or chewy bites. You can impress your friends with home-made Sour Drops, Candy Canes, Rhubarb and Custards, Barley Sugar Sticks, Jewelled Lollipops, Pineapple Chews or Maple Cream Candy, which are all perfect for gifts. Vibrant photography shows difficult stages of preparation and includes a gorgeous picture of each finished sweet, making this recipe collection a delight for the eye as well as the tastebuds.
