Are you looking for fun and easy homemade Christmas candy recipes that are guaranteed to be a hit with your family? If so, you’ll love these ideas!

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again – the holiday season is dessert season, and there shouldn’t be any shame around that! If there’s one time of year that the saying ‘treat yo’ self‘ applies, it should of course be the holiday season.

Now, we know that around this time of year plenty of retailers have their own delicacies and candies up for purchase in stores. Although it’s definitely easier to buy candy outright from a manufacturer, there’s still a special something about homemade Christmas candy. If you’re hosting Christmas parties or dinners, you’ll definitely get extra brownie points for that.

Moreover, if you have kids, you know how fun it can to cook up delicious recipes together with them! So, whether you’re looking for impressive, extravagant homemade Christmas candy recipes, or you want something easy, sweet and simple to cook up with the kids, I’ve compiled a list of 30 best easy Christmas candy recipes for you that will help you create the Christmas candy of your dreams.

My personal favorite of these has got to be number 19 – the candy looks adorable and delicious at the same time!
