Cherries and chocolate are an all time favorite combination. This chocolate fudge has candied cherries and almonds throughout, and is topped with more cherries and pecans.

Beautiful sugar coated cranberries can put the finishing touch on your holiday desserts and side dishes. Beautiful to look at, and sweet enough to eat them plain.

Cranberry Macadamia Nut Bark

This candy recipe is very pretty on gift trays and tasty too. If cranberries are not on hand, dried cherries or raisins will work beautifully in this recipe.

Perfect Cranberry Cashew Fudge

Rating: Unrated

Turn into a complete 'Christmas Tree Hugger' with this updated version of 'Yo Mamma's fudge.' The ultra smooth and creamy consistency of this fab fudge paired with the tart and tangy cherry-flavored dried cranberries and the tender crunch of the whole cashews makes this treat one more reason to leave the decorations up all year long. Merry Christmas all year long!

Peach Gelee Candy

This is an old fashioned, handcrafted candy that takes a little time and finesse to pull off. It's simple and sweet, but looks and tastes like something you're only suppose to enjoy a few times a year.

Crystallized or Candied Ginger

Rating: Unrated

Crystallized ginger can be served with espresso and cake or champagne and fruit, coated in bittersweet chocolate and rolled in hazelnuts or macadamia nuts. It can be chopped or julienned to use in or as a garnish for pastries, pumpkin pies, stewed fruits cookies, and many other desserts. Store in an airtight container in a cool and dark place.

Mexican Tamarind Candy

This is the most favorite Mexican candy of all 10 of my children...sweet, spicy, and so yummy. Full of tamarind fruit. Makes a great activity for children to help with on a long rainy or hot summer day...and homemade has no traces of lead...like some store-bought tamarind candies.

What should you get that 'special' (super-picky and has everything) foodie on your holiday list? Now you know. By the way, if you're a fan of candied citrus, you'll want to make extra, since Buddha's hand is a unique and special treat.

Easy, delicious cherries. Just like you buy in the box! It's best to let the candies ripen for 1 to 2 weeks.

Almost Like Snickers®

I found this recipe a while ago on a Swedish blog, and I have made it many times since then. I made some moderations to make it even better, and now it's the whole family's favorite snack. It tastes just like Snickers® but instead of artificial flavorings and white sugar you get healthy ingredients like almonds, dates, and dark chocolate. Try it--you won't be disappointed!
