Jen’s Candy Jar is a unique collection of recipes that celebrates the comeback of the artisanal candy-making tradition and embraces its author’s distinctive taste in sweets.

This 78-page, richly-photographed eBook provides easy-to-follow step-by-step recipe instructions, candy-making tool and tip suggestions, as well as guidance on how to vary the base recipes with extracts, herbs, botanicals, nuts, seeds, spices, and spirits, to create your own unique confections.

The homemade confections in Jen’s Candy Jar make elegant gifts for birthdays, holidays, weddings, and anniversaries. They also make decadent party favors, hostess and “thank you” gifts, and marvelous bite-sized desserts. And really, no one will blame you if you decide to keep all the candy for yourself. After all, Jen’s Candy Jar offers something satisfying for every sweet tooth.
