Since last year's Caramelpalooza, Smeeks has found a new home -- at Union at Biltmore Fashion Park. The event will be held there, and this year proceeds from tasting tickets will benefit the Arizona Humane Society. We'll have more details soon.

Today, it's all about the candy makers! In order to participate, you must:

*Make your caramels in a commercial kitchen. *Bring 350 individually wrapped caramels or caramel-inspired treats.

To sign up as a candy maker -- and/or ask questions -- please email Phoenix New Times managing editor Amy Silverman at amy.silverman@newtimes.com. Deadline to sign up is Friday, Feb. 15.

Follow Chow Bella on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
