How it all began . . .
This adventure in candy making started with Peanut Brittle. It was always my grandfather’s favorite, but the only kind available around here was hard for him to enjoy. It was thick, hard, and stuck to his teeth. So when our neighbor brought over a light and crispy version, I had to find out how she made it! She invited me over for a lesson and I was hooked. My “Pop” always had fresh Peanut Brittle from that day on.
I developed a real love for candy making over the years.
Soon it went from a holiday hobby to a small side business.
Now Uncommon Confections is in 3 retail locations, with more to come!
There’s something about the look on a person’s face when they try something really delicious. Something unexpected. I love it when people try Chipotle Toffee for the first time and get that look. That’s what I keep in mind when I make my toffees, brittles, and other confections. Candy is a treat…an indulgence.
I want to make that bite special. I really hope you love it as much as I do.
