cookie filled christmas tree candies....!



....so it's after thanksgiving and christmas commercials are being played so i think it's safe to post some holiday treats!...and i'm starting with some really super easy candies...  

you need a mold, some vanilla candy melt (or you can use white chocolate), cookies (a crunchy cookie works best that you can crush up), and some fun sprinkles...
   

i have some neat ice cube trays found at the dollar stores around here which i use for a bunch of things aside from ice!

Here are the steps:

  • Fill half way with candy melt/chocolate
  • Add some crushed cookie
  • Add more candy melt/chocolate (tap mold to eliminate any air bubbles)
  • Add some sprinkles


Let harden (i put in the freezer for about 10 minutes) and pop out of the mold


....i like these because the cookie gives a little more texture and flavor than plain vanilla candy....and you can mix and match flavors too


...and you get some super simple and fun candies to start off your holiday season....i'm making a bunch of fudge flavors for holiday gifts so i'm adding some of these to the tins as well to brighten things up!


....and can you believe it's almost December?? Where did 2012 go? oh well, enjoy it as much as you can!

Also entering these santa cupcakes in the Creative Holiday Recipe Contest being hosted by Confessions of a Cookbook Queen and Cookies and Cups! (wish me luck!)

  5. Love those! I like to make several different easy but cute treats and put them in goodie baskets for all the families (and singles who don't cook much) instead of individual gifts. This is the perfect thing to assign to my 9 yr old daughter!
