It is just so easy this way. That could spell trouble for my waistline though. I made this version to be less expensive than what you were probably paying. With my recipe, it is a one store shopping trip, no special stores needed in order to find the ingredients.

This Christmas candy is actually kind of fun to make, one that you can get the kids involved with and have them help out. Depending on the size that you make each candy piece, this recipe will give you enough to make 60 to 75 pieces, if not more.

            Once made, it is best to let the candy sit on a tray and placed into the refrigerator to set so they are easier to pick up.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Why must I follow the order when I add the chips?

Mainly because white chocolate chips will not melt if they are put in first. They will soften and turn into clumps. This does not mix well with the remaining ingredients.

            Do I really need to use all three types of chocolate chips?

I would guess that you do not need to, however, the flavor would not be the same if you do not use all three.

            Why do you say this is magic?

Because you set a timer after you dump the three types of chocolate in, and then add the remaining ingredients. The magic comes when the timer goes off and you get to stir the mix.

            Can I use white bark instead of white chocolate chips?

Yes, as I tried to state, I was looking for a less expensive way of making this popular candy.
