Candy making is a lost art form. I remember as a child watching my parents make homemade candy. In our fast-paced modern world, most people just don’t have the time involved in candy making. I haven’t learned to make candy yet, but it is on my list of homemaking skills I want to learn. I think I will start by making a couple of these 12 candy recipes for Christmas.
