Originally posted May 11, 2011, I thought this candy would be perfect for Christmas. I know we all love chocolate, but sometimes you need something a little different to change things up. But don’t say I didn’t warn you – this is addictive. I tried to send off the leftovers with my husband to work, but he forgot the container, and let’s just say that I’ve had more than my fair share this weekend!

I first saw this recipe online years ago, and it has become a household staple since then. It really doesn’t get much easier than this – no candy thermometer required, no fancy ingredients, and it can really be done in only half an hour. You’ll want to remember this recipe this holiday season when you find yourself scrambling for a dessert recipe for that last minute Christmas party or those unannounced guests. You’ll be glad to have this recipe on hand!!
