Pastry Course Day 35: Candy

This day was all about Candy. We made marshmallows, popsicles, fudge and nougat. Each candy is made with a lot of very hot sugar, so we had to be extra careful!

We started the day with a bit of theory during which we were warned for the hot sugar again. Afterwards we got stuck into making some of the candy ourselves.

Making candy is not as easy as it seems. We ended up making the nougat twice, the first time we had mixed our mixture too long, which resulted in rock hard nougat. It tasted delicious, you just had to break a few teeth before you could eat it :). That’s why we made an extra batch that turned out much softer.

Next to some nougat, we also made lime popsicles, fudge and marshmallows.

It was really fun to do, I think I’ll try making the nougat and marshmallows again some time.
