Plus, I’ve made a couple changes to the originals.

It all started when I found (orange!) Candy-coated sunflower seeds at Tj-Maxx/HomeGoods. Immediately I thought – noses, as carrots for snowmen! Just what any normal person would think if they came across these, right!? Well anyways, I highly suggest you go buy yourself a pack o’ Nutter Butters, some Candiquik and fancy sprinkles. Begin by melting Vanilla Candiquik in the tray according to package directions. Dip Nutter Butter cookies in the coating and place on wax paper. Before the coating has set, press 1 coated sunflower seed as the nose and 3 confetti sprinkles as buttons; let set. Once the coating is completely dry, use the edible marker to draw eyes and smile (or smirk, grin, “O”, etc.). Using cake writing icing to pipe on hat. Done and done!

German Chocolate Fudge. Homemade Almond Joys with Dark Chocolate. For as long as I can remember, I've been making coconut candies at Christmas time.

I drizzle them with chocolate and the most common thing I hear is that they taste just like Almond Joy candy bars, but better. While I was pondering a sweet to make for Easter, I remembered these coconut treats and decided to see if I could add an almond and make them even closer to the original. I initially made them in tiny cupcake liners and then found myself getting all crafty and forming others into egg shapes around the almonds. (Yeah, I know, WHAT was I thinking? I am not that food blogger!) It was a messy process, but really not that time consuming in the end.

If you decide to try the egg-shaped Almond Joy idea, chill the coconut mixture for 10-15 minutes before squeezing it into shape around the almonds. . * Just a note: I made half of these with coconut oil mixed into the chocolate and the other half without.

They’re just so gooooood. Well… in that case you should make some homemade snickers bars. Because I definitely did that. And I KNOW you know what I’m talking about. I spent the majority of my pre-pubescent and adolescent years scheming just how I would be able to steal my brothers’ Halloween candy. Then I went through a SERIOUS phase of those Snickers ice cream bars. And that you can eat a million of them. These days, it’s rare that I crave actual candy, often preferring some chewy cookies or super rich cheesecake or a bar of amazing chocolate that costs thrice as much as the recent organic meyer lemons I purchased.

It was great, the kids had a blast, the sun was out, the leaf peeping was at it's peak, and the mountain views were amazing! We packed up our apples, stopped at my Mother In Laws house for a quick snack to bring on the road home. She gave each kiddo a juice box, and a bag of craisins.

Salted Hard Cider Caramels. I am not huge into candy making during the holidays. I tend to leave that to my Nana. She is famous for making huge baskets and tins filled with truffles, chocolate covered cherries, fudge and other Christmas goodies. I dabble in fudge making, maybe make some cookies..... and then there are caramels. I have seen many recipes for salted caramels and cider caramels in the blog world for a long time now.

I've always steered clear of them simply because I hate making anything that calls for a candy thermometer. I go through candy thermometers like you wouldn't believe. I think I buy a new one every single Holiday season. This year I was determined to make some candies before I lose the new thermometer. These caramels are perfectly soft and chewy.
