When you make a batch of this beautiful jewel-toned candy, your whole house fills with wonderful scents of mint or cinnamon. My mom always makes this candy, and people request it every year. She puts it in clear jars with a holiday calico fabric on the lid. Now I've started making it, too.

Here's a sure way to impress holiday guests. These sweet maraschino cherries are wrapped in unsweetened chocolate, then dipped in melted vanilla chips. A chocolate drizzle dresses them up for serving on a festive plate of sweets.
Just three offbeat ingredients add up to one unique, lip-smacking, no-bake treat from Donna Brockett in Kingfisher, Oklahoma. These super-easy, sweet-and-salty candy clusters make for merry munching during holiday trips or parties. “They travel well in containers without melting or getting soft,” Donna notes, making them an ideal hostess gift, too!
I first tried these gooey morsels in a sixth-grade home economics class. My friends and I would eat each mouthwatering drop so fast, they didn't have time to chill. We still reminisce about these indoor s'mores served with tall glasses of cold milk and times spent together.—Diane Angell, Rockford, Illinois

My manager at work, who knows I like to try new treat recipes, shared this one with me. I've made this chewy and chocolaty fudge many times since. Packed with nuts and caramel, it's like a candy bar. Everyone who's tried it loves it.
