Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Some local candy makers are taking their skills to the international stage.  The owners of Schimpff's Confectionary in Jeffersonville are getting ready to take part in a competition in Sweden.

Warren and Jill Schimpff will be the only U.S. competitors.  They'll be making red-stripped peppermint sticks.

The challenge is to make 32 of them, 1.8 ounces each from 3.8 pounds of sugar.

The Small Business Administration recently chose Schimpff's as the Family Business of the Year for both the state of Indiana as well as the Great Lakes Region.
