2008 Recipe Roundup

Categories: Candy,Candy Recipes,Holiday Candy


Making candy at home is a wonderful holiday activity that can become a tradition for any person, family, or group of friends. While we’ve discovered many Awesomely Addictive candies, candy you make yourself can often be tastier and more satisfying than anything you can buy in the store.

You probably can’t remember the first time you bought a lollipop or a piece of fudge, but making your own candy at home is something you (and your children, if you have them) will never forget. If you’d like to make some special holiday memories by making candy this New Year’s Day, we at Candy Addict would like to share our 2008 candy recipes with you.

Some of the recipes are holiday-themed, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying them. Either change them around to fit your New Year celebration or celebrate all the year’s holidays at once! Yum!

From the familiar flavors of peanut butter, powdered sugar, and coconut to unusual combinations involving alcohol to the truly weird, Candy Addict has you covered.

Chocolate Covered… WHAT?!

Chocolate Covered Pretzels

  • Part 1 – Maybe you’d like to try chocolate covered gummy bears, Skittles, Cheetos Puffs or broccoli?
  • Part 2 – Or perhaps you’ll enjoy chocolate covered Raisin Bran, sun-dried tomatoes, bubble gum or garlic?
  • Part 3 – Fritos corn chips, ham, pickles, or rice cakes might be good smothered in chocolate…or not…
  • Part 4 – How about sweet potato, dried mango, cheddar cheese, or gummy cola bottles dipped in chocolate?

Muffins, Cakes and… Puppy Chow?

  • Vodka Skittles – Depending on your style, this might be just the recipe for your New Year’s party
  • Candy Theory of Relativity – If you’re not up to making homemade candy, experiment with your store-bought candy instead. Cold or warm or in between, you’re in control!

    UPDATE: I said in the article that you can’t find Cadbury Creme Eggs this time of year, but I was in CVS yesterday and they had a whole barrel of them. Who knew? I hope they weren’t leftover from last year…
