8 Quick Candy Recipes

8 Quick Candy Recipes…..

I think between now and Christmas, and maybe even the week after, I am going to do recipe round ups to help close out the year. I know that Candy is sort of a holiday treat so I wanted to get this candy round up done so there is a few days before Christmas to crank out a few batches. 😉 The only recipe that really takes any time at all is the Turtle candy, because of the caramel, but otherwise the other recipes are quick, easy, and super yummy! Let’s make some candy!

Dark Chocolate Mints

Here is a fresh, healthier, take on Andes mints. You still get the yummy peppermint and chocolate combo, but you get the added benefits of coconut oil along with reduced sugar.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bark

When you combine chocolate and peanut butter you can’t go wrong! Super simple, and it tastes really naughty, but it’s not! But that is our secret. 😉

Chocolate Covered Pretzels

These are really yummy, but a little heavier on the sugar than I’d like any other time of year, so make sure this is a giveaway treat. 🙂

Turtle Candy

Carmel, pecans, and chocolate….. is there really anything else that can be said?!

Cocoa Almond Toffee

I’m sorry to say this isn’t sugar free. 😦 I’m still working on a sugar free version… maybe by next Christmas! But I have to say that it is oh, so yummy!

Crunchy Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

A little crunchier, and lighter version, than the classic dipped peanut butter balls. But still all of the yum!

Dark Chocolate Truffles

Just between you and me… these are healthy. They are so good! I love them, and I know that you will too!

Easy Peanut Butter Fudge

One of my first recipes on my blog and it is still a favorite. This is just about the healthiest fudge you can make, and the most fool proof. No candy thermometer, no marshmallow fluff, just a few simple ingredients, and you are done.
