25 Delicious Homemade Candy Recipes

I grew up listening to that catchy tune by Bow Wow Wow, singing out loud “I want Candy!” I wasn’t a slave to candy as a young child and never knew what a sweet tooth I would have as an adult. The power of candy is undeniable. If I just catch a quick glance of something oooooey goooey I need it, want it, and I have to have it. Lucky for us June is national candy month,  let’s celebrate with these homemade confections that will have us all singing “I want Candy!”
