Recipe for Quick and Easy Candy

I was wondering if anyone has a quick recipe for some candy that is good. It can be any kind, as there are no allergies. Thank you!

I haven't tried to make it myself, but I did eat it and it was delicious. Take a can of condensed milk and cook in a pan. It should become a tan/toffee color and stick together. She then cut it into pieces the size of tootsie rolls. She said that was all there was to it. Good luck.

Last Christmas I made some "Believe it or Not" Potato Candy. Take a med potato, boil the tater w/ skin. after its done, peel, place on a plate and mix with powdered sugar.Keep mixing and adding powder sugar until it makes a soft dough. Roll out, into a round "pie crust" fill with your favorite filling. (like making cinnamon rolls, my boys love it with peanut butter.) Then jelly roll it, slice into slices, place into refrigerator for about 1 hour. Enjoy! Makes one pound. Great for the holidays.

Easy Fudge

1 tub of cake frosting (chocolate)or(vanilla)

1 tub of peanut butter (smooth)or(crunchy)

In bowl, empty cake frosting and fill tub with equal amount of peanut butter. Empty into the bowl and mix

both ingredients together by hand until blended. Pour into pan and let sit in frig. Cut into fudge squares and serve.

NOTE: I really cannot tell that much difference in flavor of peanut butter mixed with chocolate frosting or peanut butter mixed in vanilla frosting.

1 bag(about 12 ounces)white chocolate chips

1 cup marshmallow fluff

1 cup quartered gum drops in various colors

1 cup salted peanuts

Line an 8x8 inch pan with a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil large enough to hang over the sides. Grease heavily with butter or margarine. Set aside.

Put chips and fluff in a large saucepan and cook over low-medium heat, stirring constantly, until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and immediately stir in gum drops and nuts. Immediately pour into prepared pan. Let set overnight.

Next day, grab by foil to remove from pan. Cut into whatever size you like.

Note: the easiest way to slice gum drops is to grease the knife with PAM, margarine, etc....

If you like candy with nuts, melt white chocolate, milk chocolate, or dark chocolate candy bark. Stir in peanuts or cashews or a mix of nuts that you prefer. Spoon onto waxed paper. Allow to set up. This can be frozen for later use also.

My mom sent me the above link for Oreo Cookie Balls. She says they are quick and easy. And my dad (a big candy guru LOL) loves them!

Good luck!

Paula Deen's peppermint bark is SO EASY! Melt 1 pound of white chocolate and add 1 cup of coarsely crushed peppermint candies (starlight mints or candy canes). Add 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract (if desired).Spray a large cookie sheet or jelly roll pan with non-stick cooking spray & spread out evenly. Put the pan in the fridge until it is set, then break up into chunks & enjoy!

Almost just like one of the others, take a pkg of almond bark, I use chocolate, a small can of crispy chow mein noodles, and a can of cashews. Melt almond bark in a double boiler or very low heat, when melted mix in the noodles and cashews. Drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper, let set up, and enjoy. My family calls these Chocolate Haystacks.. yum. I make them every holiday.

3 C. Sugar

1 C. Milk

1 1/2 C. Peanut Butter

Boil sugar and milk over a med. heat for about 13-15 min. stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add peanut butter and beat quickly. Pour onto a greased surface or pan. This sets up really fast so be prepared! It doesn't get any easier than this!

I make "cow patties." Melt a bag of milk chocolate chips with a tablespoon of shortening over low heat in a heavy saucepan. Add 1/2 cup slivered almonds, and 1/2 cup raisins. Drop big spoonfuls onto foil or parchment paper lined cookie sheet and chill. They are excellent!!! And look like cow patties :)

old fashioned toffee

you'll need a cast iron pan- get it good and hot

pour equal amounts butter and sugar on it

the sugar will melt into the butter- stir quickly- pour onto well greased cookie sheet/jelly roll pan and let set

turn over when cool and give it a good whack- there you have it

On the potato candy recipe, you don't have to boil the potato, you can just nuke it in the microwave. Watch it, as you want the potato to be soft to the touch. My Mom used to make this for Christmas and for other gift giving times. Peanut butter crunchy or creamy style was the only filling she'd ever use. Inexpensive!! Best served chilled.

HEATH CANDY BARS

Preheat oven to 400. Spray a cookie sheet with baking spray, cover cookie sheet with soda cracker squares. Boil together 1 cup butter and 1 cup packed brown sugar, 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. Immediately pour the syrup over the crackers, adjust the crackers if needed. Bake 3-5 minutes, till the crackers 'float'. Remove from heat, cool slightly, 1-2 min. Cover with one 12 oz. pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips, return to the oven to let the chips melt. Remove, spread the chips over crackers gently. Let cool completely, can put in the freezer for a bit. Can cut into sqares or be original and hit the bottom of the cookie sheet against your counter to break the crackers up.

I DARE YOU TO EAT JUST ONE PIECE!!! Kim
