The Trick to Treats
Jen King (left) and Liz Gutman know that a cool room—and a cool temperament—is essential to candy-making. Here, they re-create one of the confections they sell at their handmade-candy company, Liddabit—layers of peanut-filled caramel and nougat enrobed in chocolate, which they call the Snacker.

Step 1
Each layer is made separately and poured into its own lightly oiled, rimmed sheet pan to cool.

Step 2
Gutman lays the caramel atop the nougat, then presses gently so they adhere.
