    Post Candymaking Horror Stories

    I remember my first attempt at making caramel.... I've always been the asbestos fingers type of cook...and I wanted to see if the caramel tasted alright... so I stuck my finger in the simmering mixture.... no one told me they call caramelized sugar "kitchen naplam" !! A huge blister raised up on my finger and I had to do some major burn control!

    One of my other big candymaking disasters was trying to make honeycomb candy... instead of going by the recipe I thought I'd get fancy and flavor it with raspberry syrup.... so I couldn't tell by the color when it was ready... burned that batch up...the smell was unearthly... even the dogs wouldn't touch it.

    Anybody else wanna share candy horror stories?

    My first attempt at chocolate dipped pretzels was interesting. I didn't buy the wafers and just used chips and had the heat a bit too high and it was smoking a bit and was a bit too thick.

    My second attempt was much better.
