The Last BonBonBar

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

I am sorry to announce that BonBonBar will be closing down. I would like to thank each and every one of you for your support throughout this candy bar-making adventure. When I started up the company in 2007, I was rather terrified by how people might respond to my products and company, but I have been so grateful for how many people have taken BonBonBar to heart. It has been a pleasure to make candy for you.

In honor of your enthusiasm, I would like to end BonBonBar as it began — with Malt Bars! We haven’t offered them in over two years, and I know I’d like to taste one again. They feature a creamy malt ganache atop a crunchy shortbread and enrobed in dark chocolate.

All orders must be placed by this Thursday, October 6th, and all orders will ship by Wednesday, October 12th. This will be the last opportunity to get or to give BonBonBars, including Single Malt Scotch Bars, Bourbon Bars, Caramel Nut Bars, and Caramallows.

In other news, my candymaking cookbook is out! Sweet Confections: Beautiful Candy to Make at Home features my take on traditional candy recipes, such as toffee, marshmallows, peanut brittle, and a host of others. A limited number of signed copies are available on the BonBonBar website, and otherwise the cookbook is available on sites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble as well as in bookstores in the US and Europe (where it’s called Making Sweets).

Again, thank you for four exciting years!

Also, this is the final post for this food blog. The archive of culinary school, restaurant, recipe, and candy business posts will remain available. Thank you for six exciting years!
