The beloved candy bars of childhood have grown up, but there is no need to go to the
French Laundry to get your fix. Candy bar devotees Susie Norris and Susan Heeger
show how to reinvent candy bars as they should be—thick and layered with nougat,
crisp with toffee, and coated with fine chocolate. Familiar candy-store bars and other
nostalgic favorites are re-created using the freshest ingredients, right down to the peanutladen
caramel and chocolate-drenched cookie crunch. A mix-and-match flavor chart
inspires anyone with a sweet tooth to dream up custom treats of their own, such as
covering marshmallows with molten chocolate. From the basics of candy making to
tips on dressing up these luscious indulgences as elegant desserts, Hand-Crafted
Candy Bars evokes the sweet memory of youth with simple, scrumptious sophistication.
