Easy (But Elegant) Chocolate Candy

READY IN: 11mins
Recipe by Marg CaymanDesigns

These are so easy to make that the kids can help me prepare them. It is just as easy to make a wide variety of these fancy morsels which allows you to set forth an impressive candy tray. Also makes an excellent gift. I prefer to work in small batches but the recipe can certainly be doubled or tripled.

Great easy and yummy candy. I can't beliefe how easy and fast this was and how good. I used nestle chocolate chips and added my kids and my favorite ingredients to the chocolate. We use rice krispies, peanut butter chips, crushed candy canes, pecans, mixed both marshmellows and peanuts for a rocky road candy. Thanks for sharing such a simple but great receipe.
