Candy Making Newbie

caphill2320 | Dec 5, 2006 07:27 PM

I was considering making homemade marshmallows as gifts this year (made a bittersweet chocolate sauce last year that was a huge hit!) but I've never attempted candy making at home before.

I was thinking about making Ina Garten's recipe, and I know I need to buy a candy thermometer. I have about $50 in credit to Williams Sonoma, any recommendations on brands?

Also, do I need a stand mixer? I have a hand-held beater that I use for whipped cream/egg whites but the beaters are not whisk-like.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
