This was one of the first candy recipes I ever made. These candies are crystal clear and can be used as decorations for a Christmas tree or a window. Cooking and prep times are approximate, and don't include making your own molds if you wish to do that.
Hi, I think this is the easiest and best peanut butter fudge ever! It is smooth and it is kinda on the softer side, but it is wonderful. I prefer to spread it out onto a greased cookie sheet for easier cutting.
I have never made truffles before but this recipe I can't resist ! Bittersweet chocolate with coffee liqueur and vodka, rolled in chopped walnuts. This will be perfect for holiday entertaining and gifts. Thank you Recipe Institute! Prep time does not include refrigerating overnight.
I love this recipe because it is so easy to make and yet it always gets 'oohs' when people see the candies and 'aahs' when they taste them!
I've gotten several z-mails asking about the candy coating. They are wafers that you melt to then dip candies into to coat them. They are usually sold in the candy section of craft or baking stores. I've seen them in the candy making section of Wal-Mart also. If you look at the ingredients photo on Recipe #104941, you'll see a photo of them. They are a different 'stiffness' than white chocolate chips but some reviews have successfully used those when they can't find the candy coating. Hope that helps!
This is such a nice "old fashioned" candy to make for the holidays. You need to make this in advance as the candy needs to sit for a couple of days for the flavors to come together. Make sure you read the recipe twice before starting. Takes some effort, but this is so delicious and a very special addition to any Christmas cookie tray - Enjoy!
These balls are so quick and easy to make. They make a nice addition to the baked goodies that you give as gifts. Make these about a week before you want to serve them as they mellow and the sharp strong alcohol taste blends in more with the other ingredients. Store in a tin with a tight lid. This year I couldn't find the Vanilla wafers so I used chocolate and I like them even more. To form the balls I use two teaspoons as the dough is quite moist. I store them in the freezer - they don't go hard and they are so good ice cold
From the December/January 05' Taste of Home Magazine. I'll be trying these scrumptious sounding truffles for gifts this coming holiday season! Oh by the way, this won Grand Champion candy recipe in the candy contest! Cooking time is chilling time.
This is an easy to make and yummy truffle. You can add different flavorings to make them uniquely yours! Great for gift giving - Melt in your mouth!! My kids and I do Christmas baskets full of nothing but homemade goodies - this is one of the favorites! (My cooking time is actual time "assembling" the truffles) Servings are approx - depends on how many you give to each person and how many you eat while making them :-) I usually get about 50 from each batch.
We have been making this fudge at the holiday season for years, if cooking time is followed directly this will produce a wonderful fudge that tastes just as good maybe even better than the fudge prepared with a candy thermometer but you won't need one for this! --- this is sure to become a favorite at the holiday season --- use only store-bought full-fat eggnog for this :)
A fun snack to make and eat! This is a great recipe to get the kids to help you with. You can speed up the cooling time by putting the pan into the fridge for about 5 minutes. (Cooking time is cooling time)
