Christmas Candy Recipes

Over-50-Christmas-Candy-Recipes_thum

 
Nobody ever had visions of rice cakes dance through his head.  Christmas means calories don’t count and candy is a food group.  Ever since I first made it four years ago, not a Christmas has gone by without someone (or several someones) asking me to make my infamous Christmas Crack.  People crave sweets during the holidays; let’s give them what they want.  To that end, I have gathered up dozens of delicious candy recipes for you to try this holiday season.
