I will confess I love candy, especially chocolate candy.  Making candy during Christmas time is a family tradition.  It is also a lot of fun spending time in the kitchen with my kids making something everyone loves.  Most of my candy recipes are super simple to make.  In fact, several of them can even be made in the microwave.  A few years ago, a follower of Recipes for our Daily Bread sent me a candy recipe.  It has become a family favorite not only because it is an amazing sweet and salty combination, but it is super easy to make using the microwave.   You can see it in the first picture below.  You simply melt white chocolate in the microwave and add a can of Pringles and peanuts.  The Pringles are salty, and the white chocolate is sweet which are perfect together.  Last year, I added mini Christmas M & M’s to it.  This year, I decided to add coconut, almonds, and dried cranberries to the white chocolate and Pringles.  It was a hit!  I have even tried using milk chocolate, Rolo’s and pecans with the Pringles, which was also terrific.  If you need a super fast delicious candy, you will have to try these White Chocolate Candy Clusters.  You can create your combination of flavors.

My peanut brittle in picture number five is another simple candy recipe you can make in the microwave.  I will never use my stovetop again to make peanut brittle.  Making peanut brittle in the microwave is not only easy to make, but turns out perfect.

The Pecan Pralines in picture number four were adapted from New Orleans Classic Desserts by Kit Wohl.  This cookbook is a collection of recipes from some of the most famous New Orleans restaurants.

    • Barbara,

      Thank you for stopping by Recipes for our Daily Bread and leaving me a comment. Pralines is all about the timing. Be sure to follow these steps and you will be good.
      Once the candy reaches 240 degrees, remove from the heat.
      Next, add the butter, extract, and pecans.
      Allow the candy to sit for 10 minutes before stirring these ingredients in.
      Next, stir the candy about 100 strokes to incorporate the pecans.
      Spoon the candy about 1 to 2 TB size onto a sheet of wax paper or parchment paper.
      Spoon quickly before the candy starts to harden.

      Let me know how it you do.
