Every year at Christmas my neighbor brings over a plate of goodies made from her collection of homemade candy recipes. I look forward to these treats every year! She will have an assortment of homemade fudge, caramels, toffee, nut brittle and divinity.
I don't know how much time she puts in to making these candies, but everyone she gives them to always loves them. I try to pace myself and only have one or two a day so they will last a long time.
Some people really enjoy doing this for others and have the knack to get it done right. I have had too many candy disasters to make my own, so look forward to these treats every year.
