Christmas Candy Stocking Stuffers
“We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.” – Buddy, the Elf
This is the time of the year for lots of goodies. Whether you are looking for treats to pass around an office party, give to a neighbor, or fill a stocking with, this is the season of treats. Some of the fun of the holidays is a little sweet indulgence. Start feeling nostalgic with some Old Fashioned Hard Candies. If hard candy is not what your looking for, perhaps chocolate! You can never go wrong with chocolate. The candy makers love specializing their flavors this time of year. Some of the flavors we find this time of year: peppermint, cinnamon, orange, and white chocolate. Not only will there be fun flavors but we will also see festive designs showcasing the traditional Christmas colors, of red, green, and sometimes silver and gold. The candies can easily add to any decor and be set out in pretty Christmas bowls for when unexpected company stops by. Sweets always make for an excellent Hostess Gift.

Everyone knows what a chocolate chip cookie is. Most people have heard of thumbprints cookies (a buttery cookie with Jam in the middle). And some have probably even heard of a snowball cookie (those delicious round cookies covered in powdered sugar, made to look like… a snowball). For a family tradition get innovative and come up with your own family cookie. Create a unique Christmas cookie and give it a name. Maybe a new type of chocolate chip cookie, substitute chips for something fun and seasonal. Play around with different types of candy and decorations to create snowman hats, Christmas trees, or presents. You might make it just this year, or it may be so good you make it year after year. Have fun with it and see what cute cookie names your kids can come up with.
