Who doesn't love to receive a fresh batch of homemade candy as a gift?
As I've said before just because someone is a celebrity chef doesn't mean their recipes are good. I have had a few incidents of trying celebrity chef's recipes and even after trying them twice they are simply not a good combination of ingredients together.
With Ina, I know that all her recipes are tried and true and that they promise to be delicious. I like that reliability and especially when I'm busy through the Holidays. Although not an easy candy to make this is delicious and makes a perfect, inexpensive gift to give away to teachers, neighbors and bring as a Hostess gift.
I like to use simple silver or gold colored chinese take out containers that are quite inexpensive from Michaels craft store. I line the container with parchment paper.
