This book is OK - it has its pluses and minuses.

There are some very creative recipes, such as Pina Colada truffles, Peach Turkish Delight, Strawberry Lemonade marshmallows, which are unique twists to the classics and the type of recipes I want when I buy a cookbook.

But there are also recipes for far more simplistic recipes, like meringues, melted chocolate wafers (think Wilton) poured into a star shaped mold, chocolate dipped potato chips, caramel popcorn, etc., which are so simple that to me to be a waste of pages (valuable real estate in a cookbook).

I mean, do you need a recipe to tell you, "Melt the chocolate wafers (= summer coating chocolate) in microwave or in double boiler over low heat. Pour into star shaped mold. Leave for a couple of hours to set (solidify)."

Do you need a recipe to tell you, "Dip potato chip into melted chocolate. Leave until chocolate is set."

There are other recipes like that, like the Peach Turkish Delight that just add "peach flavoring / extract" to the recipe. I was really hoping for a recipe using real fruit - either dried, fresh, or frozen.

Give the index of recipes a good preview before making the purchase.

I only wish there were more of the creative type recipes and flavor variations / combinations.

Otherwise, there are pictures for practically every recipes and critical step-by-step techniques.

Easy to follow instructions (usually with photos), including working with sugar, tempering chocolate, etc.

Top of the line candy book. I have over 2,500 cook books, yes you read that right-not really proud of it just using it as a point of reference. This is my second copy, daughter "borrowed" my first copy and needed it back so i bought another.

The recipes and techniques described are great. Includes recipes for quite a few types of candy that you would want to make. Even a recipe for "dots" you know those candies that you used to get that was on a long strip of paper and you ended up eating as much paper as candy? Well there is a paper free version. AND a recipe for those mints that used to sit in a bowl up by the register of a restaurant that melt in your mouth. ( totally unsanitary by the way but what the heck we were kids) Pictures for most if not all items are nice too. The toffee, peanut brittle and caramel corn recipes alone are worth the price of the book. Especially the caramel corn.

I was sad to hear that Bonbonbar, Nina Wanat's candy business, was closing its doors, because she made the best caramels I have ever tasted. But, if I can't order the caramels anymore, I at least could get her caramel recipe here in Sweet Confections!

Candies (and chocolate) have their own requirements and rules, and I'd been meaning to get a specialized cookbook for a while. Not only does this book have a good range of recipes, but there is a great section at the front about candymaking in general, with well-illustrated instructions for caramelizing sugar and tempering chocolate.

Having enjoyed Nina's confections before, I had confidence for the caramel and chocolate recipes, but there is quite a lot territory in the book that Bonbonbar did not cover. I was intrigued by the recipe for applesauce jellies, and decided to whip up a batch. I expected something with basic apple flavor, probably similar to Applets&Cotlets, that my young niece and nephews would enjoy... but what I got was tender jellies with lovely caramel-apple aroma. Highly addictive. I can't wait to try some of the other recipes!

Based on another review here I tried the apple caramels (with cinnamon) and they were delicious. I also tried the salted chocolate caramel lollipops and they were a big hit. The pictures in this book are clear and provide sufficient information so that I could succeed at candy making despite having little experience with it.

I have been looking for a decent candy-at-home book for years. This book delves slightly deeper into the reason why a recipe describes the methods it does (i.e. when to stir and when not to stir cooking sugar). I found this very interesting and informative to help the reader understand the recipe better. The author also gives a new way of preparing caramel candies which I found interesting (the dry sugar method instead of the wet). The variety of recipes is refreshing and I enjoy the complexity of some and the simplicity of others. A great book for new ideas if you're tired of the same old basics. The reason for one-less star is I am still on the hunt for the science of how to edit or create new recipes (i.e. why is the corn syrup necessary? Is it substitutable? What happens if you added fruit puree to your recipe? Does it need to be cooked to a higher temperature?) I will still be on the hunt for a book with those answers, however, in the meantime, this book is a great read and I definitely recommend it to the beginner.
