Food Network at Richardson’s Candy

The Food Network highlighted Richardson’s Candy Kitchen on Monday, October 11, 2010 at 9 pm to show the artistry of candy making. After visiting the store in person, Alexandra Guarnaschelli of The Best Thing I Ever Ate sent her crew to the Candy Kitchen to film the best of their chocolate treats; dixies became the focus of a full day of filming.

Dixies, a classic chocolate piece commonly called “turtles,” begin with caramel. Richardson’s make their caramel from scratch using local dairy products. The three person food network crew filmed the full process from the caramel being hand-stirred in the copper kettle over an open flame gas stove to funneling the caramel onto the nuts and to finally dipping the dixies into the chocolate.
