HOLIDAY CANDY

I didnt go as crazy as I normally do for Christmas and making candy but I made a couple in my opinion HAVE TOS! Knäck, which is a swedish fudge with almonds (can be excluded if you are allergic. You will need a food thermometer for this!!! And Rocky road which is just yummy honestly all year around and you can vary it as much as you want. You can put what ever nuts and candy you like in there. You can use milk chocolate instead of dark if you like it sweeter. So see that recipe as a guideline NOT a must. Really what you got throw it in. 😍

I also made super simple nutella truffles that you also can make year around!

I also made Chocolate crinkle cookies but they will be featured in a different blog ☺️
