These are awesome and perfect for holiday gift giving. I've taken two batches into my newsroom and my staff has wiped them out. They are eas but very rich and delicious. Coconut flavored ones rolled in coconut and raspberry flavored ones rolled in cocoa are our favorites so far. I found the recipe in Albertson's new magazine — Easy.
This recipe came from Roma Jean. I had never tried to make pralines until now and these are so yummy. I was part of a ladies day workshop at my church and I made 9 different desserts. This was a favorite! And I brought my microwave to the classroom and made them on site.
Wow! Another winner from Eagle Brand! Easy to make, and easier to eat!! Have fun using different chocolates! I used Hershey's special dark chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate! Sinful!! I want to try white chocolate next!!

These are those little mints that are great at baby showers, bridal showers or just anytime you want to make a little something special for a party.
You can buy candy molds at any crafts store to match you theme...or not.
I discovered this recipe this Christmas and have gotten rave reviews from everyone who has tried it. A whole baking sheet of this stuff seems like a lot but I guarantee you it will disappear! The brown sugar an butter combine to make an almost caramel-like taste. It's super easy and takes less than 10 minutes to make. Toppings are optional as this also tasted delicious plain.
* for a lower fat version, use low-fat graham crackers and light margarine
This is a family favorite mint recipe. Our favorite flavor is almond, but you can use whatever flavor you like. You can make these for weddings, picnics, family gathering or just to have around the house. I like them frozen the best and they just melt in your mouth.
This delicious recipe has only three ingredients. It tastes a lot like a chewy Skor bars - absolutely delicious if you like a toffee taste. For fun we serve it to guests and have them guess the 3 ingredients.
Note of caution - the toffee really sticks to the pan. My friend uses a rubber tray that is non-stick. I buttered a square baking tray but still had to use the old warm water trick. (place the pan in warm water to loosen up the toffee on the sides and on the bottom).
This is a recipe I found in Paula Deen's Holiday Collector's Magazine. I wanted to share it here at Zaar. It's a simple and easy recipe. I made them for my boys back in North Carolina for their Christmas holiday goody treats I send them every year. I also want to mention that I made mine on top of the stove in a large pot and than transferred it to my electric mixer mixing bowl than added the confectioner sugar 1 cup at a time. I also used the Andes Peppermint baking bits in place of the peppermint candy and 2% milk. NOTE: You need miniature muffin cups and some cooking spray
This recipe was featured in an email from the www.recipe4living.com website today. Sounds a little different from the others that are posted on Zaar. "A quick and simple recipe to follow that does not need an oven or a microwave to make." Since I haven't made these yet, I am unsure how many cookie bars this will make.
Here's a recipe I adapted from a stove-top recipe in a church women's collection back in the late 60's. It's so easy my sons made it, too, as kids. No scorching, no continuous stirring: let the microwave work for you. I use a 2-qt. glass measuring cup with handle, a wooden spoon for stirring and have a glass lid that fits. The handle helps when the candy hits over 200*
The cooling pad of waxed paper over newspaper keeps the wax from sticking to your counter top. Time numbers in brackets are for double batch.

These candies make great gifts----I can make up a batch in less time than it takes me to "run" to the store.
