From traditional toffee, fluffy clouds of marshmallow and creamy maple and pecan fudge to sherbet with lolly dippers, the recipes in Sweet Things are the stuff of childhood dreams. Soft, delicately flavoured nougat bars, topped with vanilla caramel and covered in chocolate are just big enough for three or four (big) bites and far surpass the shop-bought equivalent. Crisp butterscotch popcorn with just a hint of sea salt is the perfect adult indulgence, a box of Praline Hearts makes a delightful Valentine's Day gift and chocolatedipped honeycomb is tailor-made for Father's Day. The recipes come with failsafe instructions that will ensure success every time, even for novice confectioners, plus creative packaging ideas, making this the ideal book whether you want an imaginative present for someone special or merely to treat yourself.
