My gift to you are these simple but scrumptious candy bites.
The recipe comes from Saveur magazine and is one of those recipes that is definitely kid-friendly.
Especially during the holidays, I like to share time in the kitchen with the grandchildren, and this recipe is perfect for the little ones as they can measure, mix and drop... no cooking required.
An extra special treat this year came in the mail.
My friend and Christmas Elf, Sheila, sent along a couple special aprons for the children to wear. They were excited as they chose their favorite.
If you make these candies for a New Year's celebration... why not sprinkle the tops with some edible glitter!
