Got a sweet tooth? Well then, I need to pick your brain. Tell me everything you know about homemade candy (caramels and chocolates) making and the candy industry. Do you have experience working in a candy shop or making candy at home?

I want to know some insider information about making candy- especially caramel candy, from scratch. What interesting tidbits can you tell me? Useful tricks, things to watch for, what you love about candy making, etc. Not so much candy bar information, but "artisan" candies.
What are some common mistakes? What are common things that I would need to know? Would love to hear from people who make candy (caramels, toffee, etc at home). Your candy thermometer woes so to speak.
