Did you know that November 4th is National Candy Day? An entire day dedicated solely to sinfully rich chocolate truffles, mouth-watering luscious lollipops, velvety smooth peanut butter fudge, and icy cool after dinner mints. With the holiday season fast approaching, this day holds a special place in the hearts of many candy aficionados as a reminder that it’s time to fire up the double boiler and stock up on chocolate coating for sweet candy-making time. In honor of this exceptional calendar day, celebrate with me by exploring the sweet world of candy-related products that WEBstaurantStore.com has to offer.
Necessary Kitchen Tools
Sweet treats are born out of quality ingredients, talented hands, and necessary kitchen tools. WEBstaurantStore.com carries mixing bowls, measuring cups, measuring spoons, mixers, spatulas, and scrapers all needed for the perfect candy conception! With all of the right tools, your candy will make a memorable addition to any holiday gathering.
As your candy begins to warm up and take shape, a reliable candy thermometer is necessary to ensure a proper temperature is reached without burning the sugar. Make sure to check if your candy requires constant stirring while boiling. If so, this can best be done with use of a strong wooden spoon.
Candy making often takes shape with a strong, sturdy double boiler. WEBstaurantStore.com carries a selection of double boilers that range from a small, 1.5-quart size, to a large, 20-quart size! Double boilers are imperative for melting chocolate or fondant for all of your holiday treats, from decadent chocolates to chocolate-coated pretzels.
When I think of candy, I immediately think of old-fashioned penny-candy jars filled with peppermint sticks and lollipops. These vintage staples allow your customers to admire your candy creations while they reminisce the past with nostalgic candy memories.
When your customers finally do decide on what type of candy gifts they desire (if they can make a choice that is), don’t be caught without sturdy candy boxesor candy bagsfor an upscale presentation.
