Homemade Holiday Candy Workshop -- 10 Tantalizing Recipes for Fabulous Fudge, Creamy Caramels, Terrific Toffee and Marvelous Marshmallows!


This week I've had to step back and focus on some family business, but I couldn't help but check in to our cozy little meeting place here to wish you a very happy first day of December.  In celebration of the sweetness of the holidays, I'm sharing ten of my favorite recipes for homemade holiday candies.

Here you'll find a beautifully simple shortbread toffee recipe, my signature dark chocolate ganache topped fudge recipes, truffles and caramels, and even some bacon-laced marshmallows. Enjoy!
