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....
