Christmas Candies

I made a few Christmas candies to give away to friends and family this year.

I found the idea for the Peppermint covered Oreo's in Taste of Home's Simple and Delicious magazine.

You simple drizzle the Oreo's with white candy melts (found in my local Lowe's grocery store). Then put some candy canes in a quart size bag and use that meat mallet to break them up. Make sure you add the peppermint to the candy melts while it is still soft. Otherwise the peppermints will not stick to the candy very well.

I found the idea for the Santa's Party Mix over at Cookies and Cups.

Aren't the little Bugle Santa hats cute? I didn't have any white sprinkles. That would have looked better on the bottom, but the clear had to do.

If you would like instructions on how to make this, check out Cookies and Cups.

Note: I had never used candy melts before making these two candies. The red candy melts used on the Santa hats could not be found at my grocery store or Wal-mart. I just took a trip to Jo-Ann's and they had them there. Any craft stores would probably have them.
