Twenty Five Christmas Candy Recipes

One of my favorite things about the holidays is all the baking and candy making. I love to make old favorites, but I also love to try new recipes that I hope will become family favorites.

Today I put together a list of twenty five fun candy recipes for you. Some of these have been favorites of my family for years and others are favorites from friends around the web.

I hope this list inspires you and gives you some new ideas for your holiday candy making. (And for my allergy readers, not all these recipes are nut, peanut, and gluten free, but many of them are.)

Happy candy making!

  1. i really wanted to see the recipe for good for you peanut butter fudge ,but the link is to something else.

  2. This list looks amazing! Yummy! I think I might just do a homemade candy bar themed gift basket this year. Peanut brittle is my claim to fame in my family. 🙂

  3. These look amazing! I will have to try them.

  4. My all time favorite holiday candy is Cherry Mash……an old family recipe that is by far and away the best Cherry Mash out there. I can’t eat any other Cherry Mash besides our own.

  5. These look great! I will be trying some of them this year. I finally ventured away fom making only fudge a few years ago and started making almond brittle. Now I want to do more. Thank you for all these recipes!
