It's relatively easy to make highly praised Amish-recipe candy.


The author of this book was born and raised Amish. But you don't have to be. The recipes are clearly written, for modern kitchens — each recipe tested, tasted, and tweaked to be as perfect as possible and yet easy to make.


Because your candy is homemade, you know what's in it.


The recipes are the result of Amish childhood memories and conversations with siblings. They are based on my Mom's Peanut Butter Cups recipe (included in the book) and on other Amish recipes perused for techniques and suggestions.


The Amish chocolate-covered candy recipes in this book come with stories.


Even before the recipes, you'll find a story about a little Amish boy (me) and his adventure eating as much candy as he possibly could, with his Mom's permission.


Then, an overview of how to make the candy center and cover the candy with chocolate, so you can quickly become skilled.


After the recipes, you'll find information about the kinds of chocolate to use and how to melt chocolate.


In the book, you will find these chocolate-covered candy recipes and stories.


~ Crunchy peanut butter candy center (for people who like peanut butter, the crunchy kind). You'll read about how the recipe was developed from Mom's Peanut Butter Cups recipe.


~ Creamy peanut butter candy center (for people who prefer creamy peanut butter ). The chapter contains a synopsis of how it is different from the chocolate-covered crunchy peanut butter candy.


~ Cinnamon candy center (for cinnamon lovers). Find out why I almost gave up on this. And about stumbling on the winner.


~ Chocolate candy center (yes, chocolate-covered chocolate candy). It took several approaches over a few months to find an ingredient combination for the candy I remember from childhood.


~ Mexican seasoning candy center (for people who like sweet and savory). The recipe story is about creating the seasoning to fit the chocolate-covered candy.


In addition to Mom's Peanut Butter Cups recipe and the chocolate-covered candy recipes, there is a bonus.


The bonus is a new recipe for easy-to-make cinnamon-flavored chocolate candy. It is not a filled candy, but cinnamon-flavored chocolate. The chocolate has a subtle cinnamon flavor that makes a person smile.


All the recipes are as easy to follow as I could make them.


There is no cooking to make the candy centers. Mix the centers, cover the entire candy with melted chocolate, and let it dry.


Then, share the joy of your Amish chocolate-covered candy with the people you love.
