Thanks for the candy Sadie

I have been blessed to find a fantastic community here with my blogging friends. I have met many lovely acquaintances as well as several very close friends. One of the people who I have become very good friends with is Sadie. She is a stay at home mom to 4 beautiful kids and a lovely person. Sadie highlights many lovely things on her blog including wonderful recipes. She recently posted this recipe for candy and we tried it today. We love it! The only thing we changed is adding some shredded sweetened coconut. If you don’t have the pleasure of knowing this special person, please head over to Sadie’s Nest Loving Life From My Perch.



When I think about what I like in a candy, it usually involves chocolate and nuts, chewy and crunchy, sweet and salty. I also really love toffee. Lucky for me there is really not much I don’t like. And even luckier for me, these little clusters of goodness have it all! Recently I shared with you about my cousin Charlotte. Thankfully she shared this recipe with me! It really couldn’t get much easier either. It makes a lot of these chocolatey and nutty packages, so it’s great for giving as gifts or sharing at the office. And not to worry, if there are still leftovers… they freeze well too. Enjoy!

2 small jars (16 oz each) dry roasted peanuts (1 salted, 1 unsalted)

3 lbs or blocks of white almond bark, vanilla Candiquick or vanilla candy coating, chopped into small pieces

1/2 lb Bakers semi-sweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces

1 bag Heath chips

1 bag Milk chocolate chips

1 bag Semi sweet chocolate chips

  1. Wow – we are going to make bourbon balls because the Southern Living magazine said it’s not a southern Christmas without them. : ))) LOL! When in the south, do as the southerners do! I love chocolate though and these look luscious

  2. Lynn, these sound great. We just have to have a plan for the “extras” if we make them or I’ll not be able to control myself and eat them in massive excess. I also enjoyed another post on Sadie’s site and left a comment there. Thanks for introducing her site.

  3. I love toffee Lynn, and I really love that it can be made in a crockpot. That is the only way to cook for me at the moment, unless, of course I can use my rice cooker. Love these modern conveniences, with my old fashioned recipes. Hugs.
