These buttery, salty, deliciously chewy confections taste rich and extravagant. Even though they require attention to detail, they are easy to make and fun to give away -- that is, if you can stand to part with them. Here is your step-by-step guide to the essentials of caramel making.
'Tis the season for giving -- and that's something we at Martha Stewart Living are particularly excited about. We've taken the time to scout out dozens of charitably minded small businesses that also happen to make truly beautiful, high-quality goods. With the holidays approaching, now is the perfect time to give gifts that keep on giving (back).
The party might be over, but that doesn't mean the celebration has to end! Party favors are a sweet, simple way to thank your guests. Think: prettily packaged bags filled with sweets, silly toys, or heartfelt tokens.
Keep yourself in the loop style-wise with these easy beaded necklaces, inspired by the new book Make a Statement, by Martha Stewart Weddings associate style editor Katie Covington. Simply link together beaded loops, then finish with pretty cord or ribbon ties. A handmade piece can be a gift that Mom will treasure long after Mother’s Day (and that you might just be tempted to keep for yourself!).
