Meet the Cook: My mother and I get together every year around Christmastime to make this delicious chocolate-coated toffee, using a recipe she got years ago in a cooking class. It's a tradition I plan to continue with my daughters and grandchildren. Our families and friends wait with mouths watering for their packages.

You need only four basic ingredients to whip up this sweet and nutty treat. Sized right for two, it's an easy way to satisfy a sweet tooth. You could also double or triple the recipe if you want to have more candy on hand for the holiday season.—Louise Delozier, Albuquerque, New Mexico
These very cute chocolately treats are especially wonderful because they hold their shape. Be sure to chop the cherries into small pieces for a smoother look. For easy cutting, dip cutter into hot water between cuts.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
I've made a similar recipe with crackers and chocolate, but not everyone likes chocolate so I tried using different ingredients and flavors until I created this new blonde version. —Fay Moreland, Wichita Falls, Texas
I wasn't a fan of white chocolate until I made this candy. It's tangy, sweet and creamy all at the same time. It was a lovely treat during a springtime shower but would be nice year-round. —Diana Wing, Centerville, Utah
