My favourite recipes for sweets

fudge with chocolate malt balls

5 years ago I wrote a whole cookbook entitled ‘sweet’ so it’s safe to say I am passionate about sugary confections. I thought I would round up a few of my favourite recipes if you felt like a getting out your sugar thermometer and knocking up a few delicious treats. These are my favourite sweet recipes on Drizzleanddip. All of these make lovely edible gifts when packaged prettily in a jar or with a ribbon.
