Homemade Christmas Candy Recipes

Homemade Christmas candy recipes are a wonderful way to make your holiday extra special.

Christmas is my favorite time of the year! I SO enjoy making wonderful goodies to share with family and friends.

My biggest problem is deciding between so many exquisite Christmas candy recipes. Decisions, decisions... 🥰

My absolute favorite Christmas treat is my homemade microwave fudge.  Yes, you read that right.  I don't normally like to use the microwave much, but this recipe is so quick, easy, and delicious that I can't help myself.

I also picked a few other favorites to share with you and your family. I hope you will love them as much as I do.

Merry Christmas!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Raisin Fudge

Let's start with a quick and easy fudge recipe. We're not talking "gourmet" here, but it's pretty yummy and so very easy to make that I couldn't resist sharing it with you.

Ingredients needed:

  • 1 12 ounce package chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • 3/4 cups raisins
  1. Melt chocolate chips and peanut butter over medium heat.
  2. Fold in marshmallows and raisins, stirring until marshmallows are melted.
  3. Pour into 7x11 pan and chill until firm. Cut into squares. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

White Macadamia Candy Bark

Another quick, easy, and versatile recipe that will let you prepare a tasty treat that looks a lot harder than it is.

Ingredients needed:

  • 6 ounces of macadamia nuts
  • 20 ounces of white chocolate or almond bark
  • 3/4 cup flaked coconut
  1. If macadamia nuts are not toasted, toast them in a dry skillet until golden. Set aside.
  2. Melt white chocolate in a double boiler. Add coconut and macadamia nuts and stir well. Spread mixture on waxed paper.
  3. Chill to set, about 30 minutes. Break into pieces. Store in airtight container.

*** You can change up this white bark recipe by swapping the macadamia nuts and coconut for other types of nuts, crushed candy canes, raisins, dried cranberries, etc. Create your own unique combination for a personalized Christmas candy tradition.

Similar to the toffee recipe above is another Christmas favorite you might remember called Almond Rocca. If you haven't tasted this sweet treat, give it a try.
