Do you make candy?

I want to try making ribbon candy, I think it is so pretty, but it seems so hard. No pun intended.

  • yep, peanut brittle...smells so good. but people are so non sugar these days....used to be i made it for all the teachers, aides, bus drives, office staff...but they are diabetic so it seems a mean gift.

  • I just started making almond bark, peanut brittle and butter cream mints. I had no idea how simple they are to make and make great gifts. I've never tried the ribbon candy

  • I have done buckeye's and chocolate dipped pretzels etc, but I have never done ribbon candy...googled it, seems very labor intensive.
