A method of producing a confectionary product includes providing a chewy
material and a candy material. The candy material includes a sweetener
and is at least in part amorphous. The water activity of the chewy
material is greater than the water activity of the candy material. The
chewy material and the candy material are disposed adjacent to each
other. Nucleating sites are created in the candy material. Water is
allowed to migrate from the chewy material to the candy material. The
amorphous candy material is allowed to crystallize at least in part.
