  1. Such a creative review – love it. I’ve only read one of Siri’s books before, but I remember really enjoying it. Will put this on on my to-be-read list too. 🙂

  2. How fun! Love books like that!
    Your writing made me hungry for some good chocolates.

  3. Now I totally have to beg my husband to let me get this book 🙂 It sounds really lovely!
    By the way, It is very possible to mess up sugar and butter.
    I wonder how long I will be able to keep myself from making this 🙂 I always resolve to be healthy and throw all the sugar out of the house and then something like this pops up ;p

  4. What a fun review, Natasha! I still make chocolates every Christmas–chocolate-covered caramels, peanut butter cups, and truffles–but haven’t thought about making taffy in a long while. You’ve inspired me to do so this weekend. Thanks for the recipe.

  5. My mom made taffy some times when we were young. (And fudge every Christmas.) I don’t think most people even consider making their own candy anymore. Impressive!

      For years I made candy every Christmas. And I’ve been to a few old fashioned taffy pulls in my time. 🙂

      I’ve always loved making candy but I’ve never (as in, ever-ever) managed to own a candy thermometer at the same time that I’ve made candy. And I have bought many, many thermometers. Turns out I break them or my husband “borrows” them long before I have a chance to use them.

      That said, sometimes my caramels become peanut brittle and sometimes ice cream syrup. 😉

  6. Wow — I’m so impressed! I only wrote about it. You actually did it — from scratch! So glad you enjoyed my book.

      Not once? Not even a little meringue? 😉 I seriously was drooling over the thought… but maybe it’s because my yearly sugar-high during the holiday season was seriously impaired by this horrible sugar-free-8-week-diet thing that I (crazily) decided to go on right before Thanksgiving.

      Regardless, it was a blast (the book and the candy). Thanks for writing such a fun novel, and for stopping by to comment. 🙂
