Peppermint Christmas Candies

When I think about the Christmas season I think about snow, Christmas music and movies, Christmas decorations and family traditions. My family has so many traditions and I love each and every one of them. My favorite has always been making homemade candies!

When the holidays roll around we set aside a whole day to make so many different types of candies. My mom and grandma would do all the more labor intensive parts and us kids would fight over who would be the “taste tester” {afterall, that is the most important job! My mom would always let all of us “taste test”}! And as us kids got older we all lent a helping hand in the candy making. And even though I am far apart from my family for the holidays, I still love to keep the tradition going! I just make sure I call my mom while I’m in the midst of it! Last week I shared with you one of the candy recipes we always make:¬†Nuts & Bolts Candy Clusters. Today I’m sharing my all-time favorite candy: Peppermint Christmas Candies!

Jingle Bell Wreath

“Silver bells! Silver bells! It’s Christmas time in the city. Ring-a-ling hear them sing! Soon it will be Christmas day!”

I love the sounds of Christmas! Music playing and Salvation Army Santas ringing their bells. I remember how my mom hung a bell on the back of our front door one Christmas so anyone coming into our house would be announced by the jingle of our little bell! We loved that bell and decided to keep it up year round. I just love the tinkle of jingle bells. And when I’m all snuggled up in my warm home, I miss the sound of those jingle bells! So I decided to make my very own little Jingle Bell Wreath!

Homemade Vanilla Extract

I’m going to share a secret with you… I’m not a huge chocolate fan. Shhh! Don’t get me wrong, I like some chocolate occasionally but I rarely crave it. What I crave is vanilla. I love vanilla. I will¬†always take vanilla over chocolate. When I found out just how simple it is to make homemade Vanilla extract, I knew I had to make it! And with Christmas a little less than a month away I decided it would be a great gift too!

Nuts & Bolts Candy Clusters

Thanksgiving has come and gone and I’m STILL feeling full from dinner last night!! You too?! Oh good… I’m not alone. As the leftover turkey gets eaten and fall slowly turns to winter it is time to start making some Christmas treats! On the docket today is Nuts & Bolts Candy Clusters! Okay okay. I confess, I made these before Thanksgiving. BUT part of my family’s tradition is making our Christmas candies before Thanksgiving so we can share them for both holidays!
