Yesterday I shared with you my Must Make Christmas Cookies (see that post by clicking here) and told you this post was coming. Well, I just barely have time to get this up and out to you today because we are about to commence to making an awful lot of what you see pictured in this post! My son wants gifts to take to school and we have candy trays to make for for a few upcoming parties for folks.
So without further delay, here are my family’s Favorite Christmas Candies!
My Grandmama always made these. Read the story behind them and get the recipe by clicking the photo or title 🙂
This is a simple recipe and once you see it, you’ll see how easy it is to switch up flavors. No fail fudge is just a click away!
This has become the most requested holiday treat from my kids! Creamy, fudge like confection that is so easy it only requires melting and stirring!
Need a lot of candy and a big variety but have very little time? This budget friendly recipe is your new best friend :).
I love these things and hope one day my squirrels will save me a few pecans so I can make more. Perfect blend of sweet and cinnamon, just like you smell in the malls this time of year – only better because you made them!
I started making these to give as gifts once pecans went up in price. I like to package them in those little clear party favor bags and tie them with pretty curled ribbons at the top. They are also really cute in mason jars.
This is an over the top version of Rice Krispie treats, with a double dose of everything that makes them so good! Works with any type of cereal.
This is not traditional Southern Divinity but it is awfully good – and no fail!
These precious little melt in your mouth mints only require a mixing bowl and shaping to come together. This has become my most popular Christmas post so far this year!
This wonder candy is sold next to fudge in sweet shoppes around the Smoky Mountains. You’ve got to taste it to know why!
Whether you choose one or all of these recipes to make this Christmas Season, make sure you get your family into the kitchen with you and cook up some memories they’ll always treasure!
