    Red face Help! Need a very EASY and quick Christmas candy recipe

    Hi Friends - I just found out I need to make some Christmas candy - and I need a recipe for something easy and quick.

    I have on hand the following items:
    • Chocolate chips
    • Peanut butter
    • Pecans
    • Confectioners sugar
    • Vanilla
    • White and chocolate bark (candy coating)
    • Brown sugar
    • Butter, eggs, milk
    Does anyone have any delicious candy recipes I could whip up from some of the above ingredients? Any help would be appreciated. Much thanks.

    Holly J.

    One of my favorites is white candy bark with pistachios and craisins. Melt the bark, spread on wax paper, sprinkle with pistachios and craisins/raisins. Let harden, then break into pieces. You could easily sub pecans or pretzels if you have them.

    Did you look at the recipe for White Trash? I think you might have the ingreients for that. I did the 2 ingredient fudge recipe from here but you need Betty Crocker frosting to go with Choc. chips.

    Why don't you melt your chocolate chips, then dip pretzels in the melted chocolate? Put some sprinkles on the top while the chocolate is still warm. I found some holiday shaped pretzels at Meijer and my DD and I just did them up tonight. They look like you worked so hard on them, but they are super easy. You can also get those chocolate melting disks, instead of chocolate chips.

    Pretzel bites: I love these

    pretzels square or regular
    choc candy kisses (dark or milk)
    m&m candy (red and green or not)

    heat oven 325*, on a cookie sheet place pretzels with space between each, add a choc kiss on top of each and place in oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and place a m&m on top and press into chocolate. Refridgerate or place in freezer to reharden the choc. Super easy and attractive, my 5 year old has helped me with several batches of these this year. If you like choc. cover pretzels you will love these.

    Enjoy! and Merry Christmas!

    Quiltaddict - Thanks for this easy-looking candy recipe. I have everything for them and will be making them tomorrow. They sound yummy. BTW, here is another candy recipe someone just sent me - thought I'd share it here:

    PEANUT BUTTER FONDANT


    1 lb. confectioners' sugar
    1/3 c. butter, softened
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1/3 c. light corn syrup


    Mix all ingredients until blended. Roll fondant between wax paper to 1/4 inch thickness. Spread with peanut butter. Roll the mixture in a "jelly roll fashion." Wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours. Cut into slices with serrated knife.
