this was just something that i wanted to see if i could do… and if the end results (i’ll show you tomorrow) seem to work out, they may be my new most favoritest thing to make. evar. get ready.
ingredients = granulated sugar, liquid sugar, and powdered sugar. really, i looked up recipes online and they’re all pretty much the same, basically. i went with the food network one, just because. alton brown is adorable.
there’s some boiling involved, and it was the first time i’ve ever used a candy thermometer. that’s a handy little tool, i feel all grown up and professional now! then there was some mixing. and some more mixing. next kitchen treat i get is gonna be a stand up mixer. or maybe a kitchen addition, i don’t really have any extra space for a stand up mixer.
what the heck, let’s make em pink…
i hope they aren’t too tough, it was pretty easy to get them in the pans. come to think of it, i can see where this might be a WICKED messy project, but it wasn’t so bad… or maybe i’m just used to making a mess.
they’ve gotta sit for a few hours before i can cut them, and if they’re tasty enough, i might take it up another notch. stay tuned!
