I am really not good at cooking or baking. I’m also not very patient when it comes to cooking or baking. If something requires more than a half hour of prep and more than a handful of ingredients…I’m definitely not going to attempt to make it. Which is unfortunate, because I come from a family of really amazing cooks! (I don’t know how that gene missed me, haha.)

So, with it being the holidays, I asked my Mom and Grandma if they had some recipes even I could handle making….So, I didn’t have to bring store-bought candy for my holiday parties. These are the easy candy recipes they gave me…and they are so incredibly simple to make, it’s laughable. But they are so delicious! I figured I would share them with you all, in case someone else out there is struggling to make some candy for their holiday parties too!
