Growing up, I was never excited by Halloween candy. I always preferred salty nuts or a cup of hot chocolate to the overly-sweet loot my friends and siblings would bring home. Christmas candy, however, is another story. Nutty chocolate brittle with just a hint of salt and sweet, sticky caramels to suck for hours on end–these are sweets I can get behind!

Aside from satisfying your sweet-tooth cravings that seem to last from Mid-November through late February, homemade candy makes the perfect hostess gift for holiday parties and is sure to please even the pickiest of gift-ees. Check out our selection of the season’s sweetest treats, and come back tomorrow for our last holiday food gift round-up – cocktail recipes to share.
