I love giving neighbors and friends homemade candy during the Christmas season. That’s why I often whip up my sister-in-law, Beth’s Totally Addicting Peanut Brittle recipe. This Almond Rocca Brittle though is the stuff that your crispy, buttery, toffee dreams are made of. Lastly, these Homemade Turtle Chocolates are a classic that taste even better than store-bought!

  1. These sound amazing!! Can I…um…do them without the slow cooker? Just melt in the microwave or on the stovetop? Can I also substitute the candy melts for powdered sugar? Crazy…I know. Just wondering. Thank you for these!

    1. You can totally melt the candy coating in the microwave or stovetop! Also, powdered sugar won’t work as a substitute. You really need to use the candy melts or white chocolate.

  2. I loved the ease of making these in the slow cooker. It was easy to multitask making other Christmas treats while these melted in the slow cookies.
