    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    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 Easy (But Elegant) Chocolate Candy, 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!

      I will rate the fudge part 5 stars but I will say that I tried the Hershey's white chocolate chips to do the peppermint part, as some suggested, and it came out terrible...all greasy & wouldn't spread at all. Next time I will follow directions exactly as stated and use the candy coating.

      I just made this, and not only does it look great, it tastes amazing! I m going to make an extra batch to take to my sisters for Christmas. I also used the white chocolate chips, but it all firmed up perfectly. Thanks for such a great recipe!
