Food Trend: Christmas Candy Recipes

Print This Post Print This Post

Hey folks! I hope the holidays are proceeding ever so sweetly for all of you. Speaking of sweet, I’ve been checking out all of the latest Christmas candy recipes on RecipeLion. This December food trend is one of my favorites, with smooth and tangy blends like chocolate and orange, chocolate and peppermint, cherries and chocolate, and white chocolate covered pretzels. Did I mention I like chocolate? One of my favorite RecipeLion holiday candy recipes is for Chocolate Covered Candied Cherries. I’m also a huge fan of fudge, like this Easy Pumpkin Fudge. I love Christmas candy recipes so much, I could probably put myself into a sugar coma, but I also like to make them as gifts. Double Chocolate Peppermint Bark is always a huge hit among my family members—just don’t tell them how simple it is to make! I also like to whip up a few big containers of Homemade Cinnamon Hard Candy. A ton of RecipeLion recipes can also be used to make decorations for a gingerbread house, like this one!

While you’re at it, check out the recipes below from around the internet. These are the work of professionals!

    I am always looking for festive dessert ideas to try for the holidays but my family is always so full after our huge main meal they rarely feel like eating a huge dessert. I love these bite size treat ideas because they aren’t too filling and are easy for people to try a couple different ones without getting too full. Super cute!
