As I had mentioned in a earlier post in December, we decided to do a “made or found” Christmas theme, meaning you can’t spend money on gifts; it either has to be something you already have (a prized possession you think your sister would LOVE). Or something handmade. I have two ideas for that; one which I won’t share, since I want it to be a surprise for my sisters on Christmas, and the other, is this really simple candy recipe. It takes maybe twenty minutes to make and is so festive and delicious. I found some pinecones outside and dried them over the last two weeks, knowing I would find some use for them, picked up some clear plastic baggies, and simple tags.
- Crushed candy canes, to yield 1 cup
- 2 pounds white chocolate (or whatever chocolate you like). I used semi sweet, & white. Using Nestle chocolate chips is the simplest way.
