Whoot! We've made it to Friday Faves #50! And, since Thursday the first of February was National Candy Making Day, what a great way to celebrate our faves! Do you enjoy making homemade candies? We've shared a few of our favorite candy recipes in the past, but we will also be sharing a new favorite this week as well. These homemade candy choices will be perfect this time of year as it gets closer to Valentine's Day! You could even make your own little candy box for that special someone.
What are your favorite homemade candies?
You are going to notice that there is a theme among us here at 3 Winks. Chocolate! I thought about giving a Divinity recipe, but let's get real. It really is all about the chocolate.
But, Maddy, with her usually healthy vegan ways said, "Nope! If I am going for dipped chocolate, it is going to be the delicious fondant centers you make, Mom." (She didn't really say that, but I am sure that is what she was thinking as she picked these dipped chocolates.) If you click the picture, it will take you to the Spring version of these delectable treats.
And Now, on to our newest recipe...
Butterscotch Not-So-Squares! These are an attempt at a copy cat of the delicious See's Candy recipe that is so wonderful. I found different recipes for this candy on Pinterest, but adapted it to my own taste. It is pretty darn good, but my family thinks it is closer to a toffee taste rather than the Butterscotch Square taste. But, they gobbled it down and found it to be good, so I will call it a success anyway!
All of these recipes are super easy to make and would be perfect to share! Do you have candy recipes you love to make? Be sure to let us know about them!
