Happy Valentine's Day and Candy Recipe

2.14.2012

Happy Valentine's Day!  My daughter made candy for  Valentine's Day teacher gifts, and took photos while she worked.  This is a recipe everybody always LOVES.


Start with 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips in a microwavable bowl.  Put it aside.


In another bowl, add 1 cup of peanut M&Ms in Valentine's colors.

Add 1 cup of butterscotch chips


1 cup of pecan halves


And 1 cup of Heath toffee bits


Put this mixture aside and put foil or wax paper strips down on a countertop or table.


Microwave the chocolate chips for 60 seconds and stir.  They don't have to be completely smooth.


Add the contents of the other bowl and stir.  You don't need to completely mix, and it's better if you don't (the color of the M&Ms won't show).  Microwave for 30 more seconds and stir just a tiny bit more.


Spoon whatever size you want onto the wax paper or foil and let harden for a couple of hours.


This candy is great to put in cello bags and give as gifts, or it looks pretty on a dish at a party.  We make it every Christmas with red and green M&Ms.  Happy Valentine's Day!

Yum, that looks so good. I might have to try it for Easter with the pastel m&ms.
