Christmas Candy Roundup

I thought that it would be fun to just do a round-up of some of our family’s favorite Christmas candies!  Some of these recipes go way back and some are pretty new, but they have all become favorites!  

Of course most anything with sugar in it, is a favorite around here! :)

I have fond memories of making candy for the holidays with my mom.  We used to make all kinds of fondant and dip our own chocolates, we would make BIG batches of it and give it away to all of our friends.  I also remember making anise candy, fudge, caramels and peanut brittle, those were great times and we had fun doing it all together!  It still brings back good memories when I make them for my family now.

I don’t dip my own chocolates anymore but I do make fudge and peanut clusters, they are two of my favorite Christmas candies!

Thursday’s Thought-Note to Self:

Today my thought is a fun one… just in time for Halloween!

 I have actually used this for several tags to give to people for a “just thinking of you”  or thanks for all you do note attached with some kind of chocolate of course!   Do you know anyone who could use a pick me up today or a “I’m thinking of you today”?  Go ahead and print some of these up as tags and give them away!  It will make you feel good.


Hope you have a Thoughtful Thursday!  Love Ya!
