Thanks Dr Dan!
I just thought of a question,
. what is the best way to pack for storage or gift giving for maximum freshness ?
Most homemade candies should be stored in an airtight container. About 4-5 days at room temperature. Refrigerated 2-3 weeks. If more than 2-3 weeks then freezing.
I included some storage information with some of the candy recipes. Others, just ask. The guidelines above work for most of the chocolate covered things. The candied nuts get stale as does the pretzels
I cannot wait to try this! as always thats for the great recipes and pictures and detailed notes.
