A 7-week FLEX class. Students will learn to make 7 different kinds of delicious candies - homemade caramels, toffee, fudge, truffle balls, and irresistible popcorn. Great for Christmas, holidays, festivals or celebrations or just for fun!

Class experience

Students will: 
• Learn to make a variety of treats and candies.
• Learn to modify a recipe to fit their own needs and tastes. 
• Share experiences with one another through the classroom. 
• Build recipe files and increase confidence in cooking and baking. 
I enjoy hosting parties and planning celebrations for my friends and family. Homemade treats and candies are always a big hit for these events. These are fun to make and are always treats that get people excited. I would like to share some of my favorite recipes with learners and help them grow their recipe files!

Supplies and ingredients will vary for each class. A supply/ingredient list with pictures (for those who like to have a visual picture of what we need) will be posted 3 days before class begins each week. The full recipe and instructional videos will be posted to the classroom page every Saturday/Monday (depending on the start day of your class), so learners can gather the necessary supplies and have them ready when they want to make the treats and candies. 

Some typical supplies used in most classes include: 
Candy thermometer - required in order to cook the caramel and toffee just right
A rubber spatula 
Medium/large saucepan
Measuring cups and spoons
Wooden spoon
Medium-large mixing bowls 
Cookie/baking sheets 
Parchment paper 
Non-stick cooking spray
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Parents - please be advised that we will be using the stove to make most of our candies and goodies, and cooking candy at high temperatures. We will also need to use the oven when we make the popcorn. We may also need to use a knife to cut butter or other ingredients, as well as the microwave to soften or melt ingredients. Parental supervision is strongly encouraged.

Please check ingredients for possible allergies and be aware that some of these recipes use nuts, gluten, chocolate and milk products. If you have an allergy concern, please message me regarding possible ingredients that may be a concern for your learner.
