Today’s Homemade Candy Recipe Roundup is for those of us who enjoy giving, making, and eating delicious homemade gifts of love during the holidays. Sweet!
I almost hesitate to call it a recipe because with only two ingredients, in all actuality, it’s more of a “method” than anything else. So here then is the “method to my madness.”
“insert evil laughter here…” 😉
Not that long ago, I was given a bag of the most delicious pecans from my dear sweet friend Nancie McDermot.
I wanted to make something extra special with these delicious pecans, and something quintessentially southern. I settled on making coconut pecan praline candy, and I’m 100% certain they’re the best pecan pralines I’ve ever made or eaten!
Making marzipan has been on my list of things I’ve wanted to make for years and years. Why it took me so long to make it, I’ll never know.
But what I do know is now that I finally have, I’m excited to have the block of homemade marzipan wrapped and stored in my fridge to mold, sculpt, and play with whenever the whim strikes.
These no-bake shortbread cookie truffles can be made with homemade shortbread cookies or store-bought.
This is a completely judge-free zone so feel free to make them with whatever type of shortbread cookie you have on hand!
This recipe for Copycat Payday Candy Bars is a redo from the original post I shared back in 2011. It’s hard to believe it’s been 7 years since I first shared this recipe. Where does the time go?
While a lot has changed in the past 7 years, this recipe hasn’t. After all, why mess with perfection?
No Bake Peanut Butter & Chocolate Granola Jumbles also are perfect for gift giving. Think Mother’s Day and Father’s Day in particular.
And don’t forget to get the kids busy in the kitchen with you when you’re making these. Since these Peanut Butter & Chocolate Granola Jumbles are basically a “dump” recipe, the kiddos will have a whole lot of fun dumping and mixing all the ingredients!
I happen to love the flavor of peppermint during the holidays. However, neither of my sons are in favor of the flavor of peppermint. But, since I do all of the cooking and baking in the family, I get to choose what ingredients I add to my recipes. LOL Sorry, boys!
If you’re intimidated or scared by the looks of this Frankenstein rice cereal Halloween treat because you think you wouldn’t have success making him yourself, I’m here to give you the evil eye (make that “eyes”) and prove you wrong! Stick with me (marshmallow humor) as I show you just how painless making this Frankenstein Rice Cereal Halloween Treat will be…
Even though the presentation of this Mega-Sized Peanut Butter Cup may look difficult to recreate and intimidating to make, let me assure you that his no-bake dessert is super simple to put together. All you need is a round tart pan with a removable bottom and you’re good to go.
