Tori Takes It On: Candy Making

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

Everyone wants candy and everyone wants it on Valentine's Day, and for those behind the sugar scenes its more than just a one day event. For Angie, and the rest of the employee's at Candy Masterpiece, it's more like a Valentine's week.

Angie Bruskotter, the owner of Candy Masterpiece, says, "Its a huge push for making all kinds of cherries, over 2,000 of them. Making truffles, dipping strawberries, which are special order. We are doing all kinds of things to make a fabulous gift for your loved one."

With $1.6 billion spent on candy last year, it's the biggest candy day of the year. And for Angie its so much more, because she is familiar with each and every one of her customers.

Angie loves what she does. And since I'm a sucker for trying anything new, I had to give candy making a shot!

First thing's first, you have to grab the amorreto dough. Then cup your hands, smash it into a disk, fold it around the cherry and quickly roll it all over again. But I'll be honest., trying to top Angie's technique is tough.

Once they are all done, its off to the chocolate tampurerer. Where you pick up a cherry, drop it in, then you spin off the extra chocolate and set it in front of the fan until it dries. All which got a little messy. But hey, did chocolate ever hurt anyone?

Now it's presentation time. Each chocolate cherry gets its own cup and lined up on a silver platter. Each one must look perfect, but dealing with the flaws, I'll take responsibility for eating those any day.

Now that I have your mouth watering, come put a cherry on top of a perfect Valentine's Day. But don't forget, to get your hands on these masterpiece mouthfuls, you have to head over to the one, and only, Candy Masterpiece.
