Christmas Candy Recipe FAQ

What are traditional Christmas candies?

Candy Canes: These iconic red-and-white striped treats are as much a symbol of Christmas as jolly old Saint Nick himself!
Peppermint Bark: This is a true holiday hero in the candy world. Layers of dark and white chocolate infused with peppermint extract and topped with crushed peppermint candies.
Fudge: Rich, creamy, and utterly irresistible, chocolate fudge is a decadent addition to the Christmas candy list.
Toffee and Brittle: Whether it’s buttery English toffee or crunchy peanut brittle, these candies add a delightful crunch to your holiday confection collection.
Rum Balls: These delightful little morsels are a must-try for those who enjoy a bit of a boozy twist in their sweets. Rum balls are a festive favorite, perfect for holiday parties.
Peppermint Patties: These feature a thin layer of dark chocolate with a creamy, peppermint-flavored center that melts in your mouth.
Homemade Mints: There are two types: soft and chewy or hard with a satisfying crunch. You can make them red or green to fit the festive theme.
Truffles: Truffles are velvety, smooth chocolate ganache infused with different flavors like hazelnut, raspberry, or even a splash of liqueur, then rolled into a perfect bite-sized sphere and dusted with cocoa powder, nuts, or coated in chocolate.
