We made a plan to make candy together since Jane brought an article into work on candymaking and neither one of us had ever tried it before. She even surprised me with a candy thermometer in my mailbox the next day. I arrived to her house and she had every baking ingredient from her pantry out on the counter.
We settled on recipes - Espresso Caramel Bars and Honeycomb Candy. We took a quick trip to the market to pick up missing ingredients and then the magic began. First, we decided to work on the Honeycomb Candy which if you decide to make, patience is the key. They were heavenly. The taste can be compared to a roasted campfire marshmallow flavor. We wound up making our own chocolate ganoche and dipped half of each candy piece into the chocolate. It made an already delicious sweet treat even more delicious!
