And here, my friends, is where I provide you with the first of several, exciting collages for the holiday season. Candy! All sorts of candy! Truffles, bark, caramels, toffee, candied nuts. It’s here. For you. Click on a picture to get to the recipe or hover over for a recipe description. Next week is devoted to all things cheesecake and cookies. Hold on to your thighs cause it’s going to be heavenly.

Happy Candy Making! (Is candy – the making of, not the eating of – appearing on your holiday to-do list? If so, spill the details!)

    Thanks for putting this together, Melanie! I’m so glad to see the Black & White Bark made your list!

  2. Mariah says:

    I love making candy at Christmas! I usually just crack open JOY and see what I can find, but I’ll have to check out some of these recipes! Thanks for sharing, Mel!

    I make a boatload of candy – it’s my extended family’s favorite Christmas gift. I make fudge, toffee, penuche, pecan logs, candy cane bark, mint truffles, caramels, haystacks, almond joys, etc. Fun stuff, but the cost of chocolate these days almost did me in!

  4. Joan says:

    Great list and thanks for sharing!

  5. Rita says:

    Would like samples of each, please, and be a professional taster :))

  6. I don’t usually make candy for Christmas but this makes me want to!

    That’s hilarious! I hold onto my thighs every Christmas! I’m now going to have to run many more miles so I can eat all this delightful candy.

    My baby just turned one but my post baby tummy has yet to reflect this joyous milestone so I am going to try my hardest NOT to make any of these–I’m going to try to get by with looking at the photos and drooling. Love, love, love your site! And I have to add that your photos are always so beautiful.

  10. Megan says:

    It’s okay if I make all of these, right? I’m not really expected to choose just a few from all those options? Thanks for singlehandedly ensuring that I gain at least 5 pounds over the holidays!

  11. Kathleen says:

    This holiday season I will be making non-nut Turtles (my mother can’t have nuts) I use pretzels, homemade caramels, hard candy, divinity and fudge. The turtles are so easy! Take a small pretzel, place it on waxed paper, add a caramel and a Hershey miniature on top and melt until covered. YUM!
