I love the books, The Chronicles of Narnia, by C.S. Lewis. I remember reading through the entire series in my school’s elementary library as a child. The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe was, and still is, my favorite book.

I was thrilled when I saw the original movie as a child and so I was, of course, insanely excited when they came out with a new version of the movie in 2006. I actually went to see it in the theater, and that’s a rarity for me. So when I stumbled across a recipe for Turkish Delight, I just had to share it!

Turkish Delight Recipe

The author of Sprinkle Bakes Blog, Heather Baird, is also a huge Narnia fan. She was psyched when produced with the challenge for creating and featuring Turkish Delight on her blog in response to a birthday request from a girl turning 13. The result was a fantastic recipe for a sugary sweet, pink candy treat that can be made in the microwave!

The ingredients for this Turkish Delight recipe are simple. The candy recipe calls for cold water, cornstarch, sugar, corn syrup, pure lemon extract, powder sugar, ground pistachios, and little food coloring for that lovely pink. The rest is up to you. You can grab a printable recipe with the full ingredient list and recipe instructions from Sprinkle Bakes here.

    This is great! I never read the entire series, but we did read The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe in grade 4 or 5, and my teacher brought us in Turkish Delight to try. 🙂 I tried making it once too on the stove, but I went to the bathroom and it boiled over and puddled underneath the oven – what a disaster! Something that can be made in the microwave sounds a little safer. 🙂
