Christmas Candy recipes if you please

do you have Christmas candy recipes you're willing to share?
I just know the honey comb one.
If you would share I'd be eternally grateful

Isn't there a Christmas candy exchange thread somewhere? I thought someone made one after it was suggested in the holiday cookie thread.

Hi LEFSE, What I know about candy is not much but if this place doesn't have any Christmas style candy recipes then there must not be many. Just click on the recipes tab. Santa Claus and Christmas at the Northpole

Rocky Road gets served quite a bit in Oz at Christmas. There are heaps and heaps of variations of the recipe but this is one my friend uses:

Rocky Road Slice:

(According to her, quantities vary to taste)
chocolate
marshmallows
glace cherries
roasted unsalted peanuts
descicated shredded coconut (don't have to use this, but I do :p)

Melt the chocolate, either in the microwave or in a glass bowl over a saucepan of hot water(be sure not to heat it too much or the chocolate will separate or worse, burn!). Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, then pour into a tray or dish and let it set in the fridge.

But to get a better understanding of what it is aiming for:

went to the links and got great ideas, thanks so much for helping me. after looking them over, I'm going to make a batch of candy for the people in my life, that usually have my life in the balance

made 5 batches of hokey pokey for work friends and supervisors this morning, finishing last one right now, using maple syrup and brown sugar, oh so fluffy
