The fudge recipe from my mother combines two ingredients commonly found in Viennese desserts—semisweet chocolate and hazelnuts. It's a staple in my home at the holidays. —Loranne Weir, San Ramon, California
"A friend fixed these treats and gave them away in pretty canning jars," recalls Michelle Krzmarzick of Torrance, California. "The combination of sweet, salty and peppermint is just right," she adds. Try dipping them in white candy coating and rolling them in crushed candy canes for variety.
Our Test Kitchen staff had a blast creating these adorable candy cane stocking stuffers. Rudolph and his friends never looked sweeter than they do with pretzel antlers, chocolate eyes and red-hot candy noses.
Chocolate and peanuts are two of my favorite treats, and the combination in this recipe, along with butterscotch, gives this candy a special flavor. My mother made these for Christmas every year, but they're so easy to fix, you can enjoy them anytime.
