candy man

Who can take a sunrise
Sprinkle it in dew
Cover it in chocolate
and a miracle or two?

The candyman
The candyman can
The candyman can ’cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good……..

What’s he up to now?

David is all interested in candy making these days!  He’s quite a fun kid, I love the way he has such an interest in doing things.  He gets inspired by youtube videos, books, and tv shows.  Then he quietly sets to work, following directions carefully and never cleaning up after himself.

He’s been asking me:  “Did you get any more corn syrup?”

He made hard candy three times, his first batch was eaten by the dog.

He also made taffy.  I had a piece and it tasted like watermelon.

This was his second batch of hard candy.  He poured it out onto a greased cookie sheet and after it was cool and hard he pounded it with the back of a spoon to make serving sized pieces (serving sizes for large people and/or elephants).  I wonder if he’s making candy or dentist bills?  I keep telling him to go easy on the consumption of all the candy and to make sure he brushes his teeth.  But other than that, I don’t discourage him because maybe he’ll be a famous candy maker someday.

Taffy and hard candy!  I’ve never gotten the courage to make those things!

I bought him flavors for his candy and he also picked out some lego candy molds.

The candy is so hard that it will take you half the day to finish just one piece!

    1. Maria, thank you! It did indeed stick together and we needed that tip. I will let him know. I bought him small square wax papers to twist his taffy into.

  1. That’s awesome! Candy is hard to make. I’ve tried to make peanut brittle three times before and I never did succeed. I think there is a knack to knowing exactly when it’s reached the candy stage. Apparently Dave’s got it!

  2. That boy will never be bored. He is your inventor. I had one like that. My middle. So creative.
    Nice candy mold, Davey-do. Oops. Sorry not sorry. 😉

    1. I love that you still call him that. We still do at times, too. He’s as tall as I am now! He is at that “growing in his sleep and all day” stage….hugs!!
