As I mentioned, on the reverse side of my Christmas cookie baking list I always make two more lists. One of them is the tentative list of Christmas candies I want to make.
I come from a long line of Christmas candy makers. My grandmother loved making the traditional Five-Minute Fudge, and made batches of it at the holidays -- both Christmas and Thanksgiving. My mother, as I've said here many times, was locally famous for her delectable (but difficult) Maple Fudge. (I'm sure you could easily find Five Minute Fudge with an internet search, and Maple Fudge can be found by doing a search here on the blog.)
I tend to make only a few kinds of candy at Christmas time, so my list is quite short.
Here's the list in case you can't read the one at top. I'll include links too, along with a couple of photos.
Arlene’s Easy Fudge
Chocolate Dipped Orange Slices
Date-Nut Casserole Cookies
These date balls I linked to above aren't really a cookie; they are more of a confection. So that's why they're on the candy list rather than the cookie list!
And there you have it! Of course, you never know. I've posted other fudge and candy recipes over the years that I just might be motivated to make for 2019. That's why my lists are tentative! They are subject to change as the season rolls along.
Happy candy making!
