Making homemade candy for the holidays doesn’t have to be stressful! And it’s actually really fun sometimes to change things up from holiday cookies to homemade candy.

Below are my favorite candy recipes to make during the holidays. Some of the recipes are more on the faux-candy spectrum – so delicious and so easy.

BONUS: Most of the recipes don’t require a candy thermometer!
