    I am thinking of making some homemade sweets, top of the list is Peanut Brittle and Honeycombe - Cinder Toffee :).

    I think an idiot could make these, so I will ;).

    Maybe Fudge and Turkish Delight too...
     
  2. Good luck, lavender scented Turish Delight is wonderful.
     
  3. Never tasted Lavender Turkish Delight, sounds great, I am rather partial to Turkish Delight.

  6. Fudge can be a bit of a bastard but the learning process can include all sorts of interesting results - Scottish Tablet being one.
    As to Lavender it seems to work well as a flavouring - Mason's Lavender Gin for example, though I think of it as liquorice gin because of the flavour.

    Seconded - I did vanilla fudge a while back which was a huge hit with the family. Will have to do that again.

    I used to have a book, growing up, which was a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-themed recipe book. You could make suckable pencils, lickable wallpaper and all manner of funky other sweets - I'll have to see if I can find it!
