Learn how to make three chocolate candy recipes
Homemade Chocolates for the Holidays
My three most requested chocolate candy recipes. These are tried and true and they have been made for generations. You can’t go wrong adding these decadent chocolates to your Holiday specialty treats. Give these easy decadent chocolates a try. You and your sweetheart will enjoy your efforts.
Peanut Butter Balls
The peanut butter balls recipe is one that I have made for my family and friends well over thirty years. I like the smooth creamy peanut butter taste. A bit like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, but a bit sweeter.
This English toffee recipe has been in my family over 100 years! That is a long time for a family tradition of making candy. My grandmother showed me how to make it and I have shown my daughter in hopes that someday when I pass, the family tradition will be carried on.
The truffles recipe is one that I stumbled upon many years ago. The original recipe called for alcohol, but since I was making this for my family, I opted to change it and not have alcohol. They are very easy to make and delicious. You can have the young ones help scoop out the chocolate and roll the chocolate balls in the ground almonds or outside topping of your choice.
Easily Make Uniform Sizes
For both the Peanut Butter Balls and the Truffles, I use a small cookie scoop to get uniform small size balls. I have often searched from store to store with no luck finding a small cookie scoop. Here is a great resource to purchase the scoop without chasing from store to store.
