Amy’s Cookbook Finds: Sweet Confections {+Giveaway!}

By: Amy Atlas, in Great Finds, Recipes, Swag

I think you all know by now that I have a slight obsession with cookbooks.  My husband and I laugh sometimes that cookbooks are to me what shoes were to Carrie Bradshaw, and that our home is slowly but surely being invaded by cookbooks. My collection rivals the Barnes and Noble cookbook section. While I read many books online now, there is something about flipping through the pages of a cookbook that I’ll never tire of. Even though a lot of publishers send books my way, one of the things I love to do is to nestle myself up in a book store and scout out the hidden gems that come out every now and then.

While in B & N this past weekend, I found Sweet Confections by Nina Wanat of the BonBonBar.  I instantly fell in love with the photography {by Diane Cu and Todd Porter of The White on Rice Couple} and styling. I just found this book and haven’t had time to delve into the recipes yet, but the photography, styling, and beautiful confections had me at the first page. The book is mostly about candy-making (think caramels, fudge, and chocolates) and Nina’s recipes can entice even savory-lovers to pick up this book.  Some of the elegant recipes Nina explores are pumpkin caramels, chocolate-dipped honeycomb, and peanut butter pralines. She also has some fun recipes in the book like homemade dot candy and liquor lollipops.  I think this book will make anyone overcome their fear of the candy thermometer!  Good news for one lucky reader!  We reached out to the publisher and they are giving away a copy of this book to one of you. Scroll down for the rules to enter the giveaway and for a peek of the book.

I remember enjoying learning how to make colorful candies with them. 🙂 I have also made nutty chocolate fudge, YUM! and melted chocolate in a variety of colors & shapes like red, white & blue stars, butterflies, white doggy-bone…but I’d love to learn more on how to make homemade marshmallows & other great candies! 🙂 Thank you!

    I love making Fudge – the grainy coarse kind, not the creamy kind. I struggle making it to the perfect setting consistency but I love watching the gooey bubbles as they boil and toss themselves around the pan when cooking.

  • Michelle

    What a lovely cookbook! While I don’t have a lot of experience making candy, I sure have enjoyed the few experiences that I have had. When I was a kid, I made suckers with my Mom and the plastic spoon melted in the hot sugar mixture! So, when we ate the suckers, there were strands of plastic throughout! My candy making has improved since then, but I still would like to learn more, especially with my extra-large sweet tooth… 🙂
    Thanks for the give-away.

  • Robyn Amott

    What an amazing find! I grew up making candy. My Mum use to turn our kichen into a chocolate production factory as she made order after order of gorgeous chocolates for her market stalls. I remember hand painting gorgeous easter eggs – made to order! I guess that’s where my obsession with making every occasion candy filled came from. My husband now calls me the candy kid when it comes to the spreads for my children’s birthday parties. My next attempt for my daughter’s 5th birthday is chocolate cake-pops covered in white chocolate and multi coloured sprinkles (hundreds-n-thousands).

  • Cristina

I can’t wait to see what other yummy treats are featured in this lovely cookbook!

    I used to make candies and sell to my aunts when i was younger but recently did some chocolates for a friend’s baby shower and my passion for candy making came right back in!!1 This weekend i was in a woman’s retreat and learned to make pretzels covered with chocolate. This book will be SUCH an addition to my passion.

  • Megan

    I “liked” Amy on fbook! I have made candied walnuts and almonds, cookies, homemade birthday cakes, and white chocolate peppermint “bark”. That is about the extent of my abilities, this cookbook could help me greatly!

  • Helen

    I’ve never made candy! But want to give it a try 🙂 I have melted chocolate and made chocolate dipped pretzels & also chocolate whales from whale molds for a baby shower…but never made from scratch candy. And I’ve ‘liked’ Amy on facebook for months now.

  • I have! I recently made homemade graham crackers and homemade marshmallows for a campfire cookout, and I made chocolate dipped sea foam the other day as a treat to eat during karaoke with some friends. I loove candy making and this book looks really cute.

  • I LOVE this cookbook! Yes, the candy thermometer and I are great friends. I even had a toffee business for two years and sold a ton of treats right out of my own kitchen. But, then I decided that working with food all day is exhausting in a lot of ways, so I came up with a new business and now I make personalized lap desks.

  • Nancy

    I’ve made classic fudge and orange liquor truffles, and almond truffles 🙂 My usual bookstore was Borders, but since they all closed down haven’t had the opportunity to check out Barnes and Nobles but will do!! Thanks for the everyday inspiration Amy!!

  • DeDee

    I have made a couple of easy things, and although I would love to make many more things, I admit I have fear of the candy thermometer. Maybe this book will help me overcome and help my events become candilicious!

  • I’m already a fan on Facebook and your dessert tables have been a source of inspiration for me for quite some time now. I’ve given candy making a shot a few times.

  • Veronica LePinske

    Never-failed fudge was my grandmother’s recipe. I could remember standing over the stove and making this with her as a child. She past away on June 10, 2001 and that Christmas, I thought I would make it for the family as a remembrance. Let’s just say, the never-failed fudge, failed 5 times but was perfect over ice cream, considering it never hardened.

  • Donna C

    I liked the facebook page.

    I have made crunch bars and peanut butter cups 🙂

  • Sydnie

    I haven’t made candy before but i have always wanted to!

  • Laura

    I just made fleur de sel caramels! I love to make chocolate covered cherries for Christmas, but I haven’t in years. I’ve never done lollipops, and I think I could have a lot of fun with that.

  • Betsy

    I usually make lots of fudge and various other types of candy during the holidays to give as gifts to family, friends and co-workers. Like you I am a sucker for a good cookbook with beautiful pictures.

  • {Just Liked you on FB!} So far I’m miserable at making candy. I tried making brittle at one point and it came out super-soft (still tasty though!). Then I tried making a creamy caramel. It came out completely liquid. I could use some good instruction!

  • like your facebook page- i’ve tried marshmallows but wasnt so impressed with the outcome

  • Laura

    Candy now your talking!! I’ve tried carmel corn several times, some good some not so good

  • Tracy

    Fudge is about all the candy I have tried to handle so far, but I did buy a candy thermometer this year so I can try some more at the holidays.

  • I’ve only made truffles 🙂 The ideas in the cookbook look like a lot of fun though!

  • I already “like” you on FB 🙂 I have made chocolate covered goodies before, but never hard candy. This looks like a great book!

  • Amy Atlas facebook fan!I haven’t ventured into candy, I’m still working on cakepops

  • Raquel

    I’ve never made candy before, but those salted caramel lollies look to die for–maybe dipped in chocolate?

  • megan

    i’ve never made candy but would love to add it to my repertoire!

  • I’ve made some candy before, mostly candy apples, caramels, and fudge. This cookbook could be dangerous to have, but I love what I see of it already!

  • Angela Willis

    I am your FB friend!

    I taught my kids how to make homemade truffles, since they are super easy to make, and they adore chocolate (like their Mother!) They know how to choose quality ingredients and make incredible tasting truffles! We typically make these for Thanksgiving, to give us a little rich chocolate treat to go along with the pumpkin pie! ; )

  • I’ve made coconut ice, fudge and hokey pokey before. Hokey Pokey is really fun to make because it blows up all puffy when you add the baking soda.

    I’ve only made candy a few times and it’s mostly to decorate cakes with, like candy coral or easy lollipops.

    I have always loved making little bite sized candies and truffles – although some turn out better than others. They are perfect for any occasion and definitely a crowd-pleaser. This book looks like so much fun with fabulous photographs(usually my favorite part of any cookbook) and great tips.

  • Tiana

    I made candy jewels for a treasure chest cake I made. They added spark and shine!

  • I like you on Facebook!

    I’ve made coffee candy, caramels, and fudge before…but I’d like to try other types of candies, like the lollipops.

    When I was 11 I went to Hawaii to visit my grandma and my sister(she went to high school there) and my sister’s boyfriends mom ( confusing…I know) taught me how to make Li Hing Mui lollipop’s. I’m 27 and still use the same recipe!

  • isms

    I’ve made a few RANDOM candies and I’ve messed them up in just about every way possible. hehehe So I guess I hope this book provides thorough instructions and foolproof recipes 😉

  • I love my sugar thermometer and use it often enough. I made some dinosaur chocolates as cupcake toppers last week. Nougat on the menu this weekend.

  • Claudia

    Hi Amy
    Regarding chocolates I only have done some shortbread cookies or strawberries dipped in it. But I would love to start doing bonbons and candies. I just started buying some molds and start with this chocolatie adventure. Since my little one is turning 1 very soon I love to try something different (I usually do cupcakes, cookies and mashmallows).
    I missed your book signing when you came to Houston but I got one at W-S.
    Love your work.
    Thanks for your ideas!!!!!
