Candy Creations in operation: Business specializes in making handmade truffles
About three years ago, Kelly Kimlinger of Hastings needed to come up with a way to fundraise for a trip her son was about to take. Eventually, she decided to make her own truffles and she then sold them as part of the fundraiser.
"They were a hit," Kimlinger said.
That prompted her to keep at it. She made more and sold them to family and friends over the holidays.
"They kept encouraging me to start my own business - so I did," she said.
