Candy Recipes

Mix and Match:
Melt whatever kind of almond bark you want (butterscotch, white chocolate, chocolate) in your microwave. Dip pretzel rods, dried fruit, etc. in it. You can even stir in rice krispies, raisins, coconut, etc. Either lay it out on waxed paper or drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper to cool.

Easy Fudge:
8 oz. semi sweet chocolate
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup nuts, (optional)

Grease 8 X4 or 9 X 5 loaf pan. Microwave the chocolate and sweetened condensed milk in uncovered bowl on high for about 1 minute and stir. If the chocolate has not completely melted then microwave at additional 10 – 15 second intervals until you are able to stir it smooth. Stir in vanilla, and nuts, (if adding). If you want “rocky road” fudge, you may also add mini marshmallows at this time. Spread in a pan and refrigerate until firm. Cut into squares.

Peanut Butterscotch Krispies:

12 oz. butterscotch morsels
3 cups Corn Flakes
1/4 cup peanut butter

Melt the butterscotch morsels and peanut butter together, stirring until smooth. Add the corn flakes and mix well. Drop by tablespoons onto waxed paper.
