Christmas Candy

Here are a few easy candy recipes always a huge hit with our family.

CHINESE CHEWS

Ingredients:
1 pound chocolate
1 large bag of Chow Mein Noodles

Melt chocolate over low heat. Slowly mix in noodles. I've found it's easier to mix and thoroughly coat noodles if you add them in slowly rather than pouring the entire bag in at once. Drop by teaspoon on to wax paper. Keep refrigerated.

CANDY COOKIES

Ingredients:
1 pound chocolate
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup marshmallows
1 cup Rice Krispies
1 cup Spanish Peanuts (optional)

Melt chocolate over low heat. Stir in other ingredients. Add more marshmallows and Rice Krispies as needed. Drop by teaspoon on to wax paper. Keep refrigerated.


=================================

FESTIVE FUDGE

Ingredients:
3 cups (18 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips (or milk-chocolate chips)
1 (14-ounce) can EAGLE BRAND Sweetened Condensed Milk (NOT evaporated milk)
Dash salt
1/2 to 1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Optional: Peppermint extract for mint flavoring or 3/4 cup peanut butter chips

In heavy saucepan; over low heat, melt chips with EAGLE BRAND® and salt. Remove from heat; stir in nuts if desired and vanilla. Spread evenly into wax paper lined 8- or 9-inch square pan, or 13-1/4 x 9=1/4 long cookie sheet.

Chill 2 hours or until firm. Turn fudge onto cutting board, peel off paper and cut into squares. Store covered in refrigerator.
