Crafters will love this book looks as easy as candle making and for non crafters, the fantictic pictures, enthusastic words and clear instructions will make them itch to get the pots and pans out and have a go. Read full review

I have had this book for years and found it to be the best on the market. I have made endless bars and even made my own recipes. This book is like my bible.
