Do you remember ‘Charlie and the chocolate factory’ movie? Who wouldn’t be happy to make a trip into the imaginary world with chocolate rivers and trees made from candies?

Open all the secrets of candy making in Candylicious
Candylicious offers not only the opportunity to taste the huge variety of sweets but allows enjoying the process of their manufacturing. Furthermore, guests are able to participate in this amazing activity. The second level offers a spacious presentation zone, where candy makers create colorful candies right in front of the audience. This is incredibly spectacular and enjoyable activity.
First of all, they have to cook caramel, which has to be poured in special metal templates. Later they add various tasty syrups, mixing everything together. The caramel has a gold color, while syrups can be incredibly bright and colorful. As a result, we have a chance to entertain ourselves: adding red syrup that covers the caramel surface, and waiting until the skilled master starts mixing the components, creating new and lovely colors.
The biggest shop of sweets is located in Dubai and called Candylicious. Here you can find more than 5,000 different species of sweets brought from all over the world. One can find various oriental cadies, Turkish cakes, Italian gelato, and even giant Chupa-Chups lollipops from Spain. One can even try the most of the sweets for free.
When caramel gets solid, they divide it into pieces and press on a special table. They use a special metal heated plate that allows avoiding sticking of caramel.
The most spectacular part of the show happens when caramel is put on the giant hook and stretched. This is made to add more oxygen to caramel, creating a required shape.
After that, depending on the desired taste and pattern, colorful templates are put together and twisted. As a result, we get a big colorful sausage, and it looks impossible to make a small candy from it. The last stage is the most complex and difficult one. The template has the diameter of 20 cm, and it has to be stretched until the diameter reaches less than 1 cm. As a result, we get soft caramel that will be transformed into small candies with patterns inside.
