My latest recipe book to review is Sally's Candy Addiction. The American Food Blogger's book is filled with loads of ideas that will make anyone with a sweet tooth happy. Most of the ideas are really simple which means it is a good book to give you ideas of things to make with the children. There isn't anything healthy about this book. It has recipes such as crisps dipped in chocolate and sprinkes added. That said it is great if you want some simple ideas for parties. There is a rather tasty looking deep dish cookie which I think I am going to have to have a go at soon for one of the boys birthdays.
As it is an American book, measurements are in cups and there are one or two ingredients that would be hard to find this side of the pond. That said, I use recipe books as a guide and often substitute ingredients anyway.
You can purchase Sally's Candy Addiction from Amazon and there is also a chance for one of my readers to win a copy at the end of this post.
This is such a simple idea, but tastes great and would make a perfect homemade Christmas gift. It is so easy you could get the children involved too.
