And while the offerings at the drugstore are mighty tempting (I'm no match for Cadbury Cream Eggs!), I think it's also a fun opportunity to try your hand at making homemade candies!
Scroll down and get inspired!
Fresh Fruit Chocolate Bar. A thick bar of dark chocolate filled with a mix of fresh berries and bananas? Total perfection!
Salted Rocky Road Fudge anymore, because when I do, I just eat the whole tray. That combination of marshmallows, chocolate and almonds? It's perfection.
DIY S'mores Pops! These are a super fun candy treat to serve at parties or use as favors.
Chocolate-Covered Blueberries take just minutes to prepare, and are one of those treats you can really feel good about enjoying (antioxidants!!). Perfect for movie snacking or to serve along with bubbly cocktails when you have guests.
Salted Honey Butter Caramels--these buttery, chewy, sweet AND salty treats are a dream come true. I recommend getting a friend to help you wrap them, though! (And load something up on Netflix!)
Homemade Coconut Marshmallow recipe (one of my FAVORITES!). Surprisingly easy, and so so good.
Boozy Rum Cake Truffles. I'm not sure if this technically counts as candy (it's really cake, I guess), but whatever! They're amazing.
Peanut Butter Coconut Truffles are definitely proper candies. (Also amazing.)
Passion Fruit & Vanilla Bean Pate de Fruit. These things are my FAVORITE. They take a little patience, but the recipe makes a TON, and these fancy fruit gels are usually sold for $2 for a single tiny square, so I'm basically teaching you how to print money here.
Dark Chocolate Lime Truffles. The combination of fresh lime zest + dark chocolate was a revelation for me. These are super easy. Go make them!
Cocoa Espresso Truffles. Maybe you prefer your chocolate with a kick? These are loaded with espresso. I think that means you can eat them for breakfast. I think.
Homemade Honeycomb Candy--it's as fun to make as it is fun to eat! (Seriously...it's like an edible science experiment sans the dorky safety goggles.)
Frozen Chocolate Banana Cups--Like homemade peanut butter cups, but filled with mashed bananas! Such a fun and easy project.
