Chocolate Covered Candy Canes | A Holiday Favorite

Chocolate covered reindeer candy canesLooking for a quick and easy holiday treat that will entertain your guests? Chocolate covered candy canes are simple to put together and offer a delicious contrasting combination of mint and chocolate flavors.

What you will need:

  • Peppermint candy canes (plastic removed)
  • A cup of milk or semi-sweet chocolate
  • Black sixlets or Black sugar pearls
  • White jelly beans
  • Red Skittles
  • 5 Tablespoons of cream (optional)


The first step is to melt the chocolate chips with cream (optional) stirring over low heat to keep the chocolate from burning or clumping. Once the chocolate has no more lumps it is done and ready for the candy canes to be dipped. Prepare a baking sheet or celephane to be ready for the candy canes to cool over. Hold two candy canes at the curve at the top and dip them quickly into the chocolate and place them together on a baking sheet to cool. It is important to have the accessories eyes (white jelly beans) and nose (skittles), ready to place on the candy canes when the chocolate starts to harden.

Christmas Candy | A Traditional Favorite

Christmas-Hardy-Candy-MixWhat are your Christmas memories? We all remember going to grandma’s house and she always had a candy bowl filled full of bright colored Christmas hard candies that you only found during the holidays.

A delicious variety of unwrapped and wrapped hard candies in different colors, flavors and shapes. You would carefully pick through the bowl to find the strawberry jelly filled oval hiding at the bottom and took extras for later putting them in your pocket.

From Primrose filled ovals to Primrose cut rock candy with the cute little Christmas trees in the middle along with other shapes of the holidays. These candies helped to make Christmas magical.

Also available are the pretty red, white and green starlight mints that are found during Christmas time. We often use them in different decorations. I recall one Christmas in which my mom made a candy wreath out of these starlight mints, every day, leading up to Christmas, she would let us eat one of the starlight mints until they were all gone.

Licorice Candy | An Old Favorite

buy licorice onlinePeople have developed a love/hate relationship with black licorice candy over the years and was first introduced and created in Holland sometime during the early 1770’s. The licorice root was brought to Europe in 1358, during the later years of the Roman Empire and was used for medicinal purposes, such as stomach cramps and pains.

The popular candy Twizzlers is not really licorice. It is flavored with
a licorice flavor called anise. Real licorice contains a chemical substance called “glycyrrhizin”, which is the main substance in the licorice root that is used to create licorice (and is around 50 times sweeter than sugar!).

Licorice was imported from Spain and Italy in bulk has played an important medical role in history going back almost a thousand years ago with many healing powers and health benefits such as: a health tonic, a blood pressure and purifier, reduces inflammations of internal organs, mild laxative and relieves sore throats.

Black licorice flavor was not for everyone so candy makers decided to come up with different flavors to other than black licorice such as: cherry, strawberry, raspberry, apple, mango, watermelon, blue raspberry, sour and many more flavors to choose from.

How To Make Black Licorice

In addition to flavors, candy makers also started to make licorice into different shapes than the standard wheels such as: ropes, coins, pipes, string and bits.

History of Tootsie Rolls | A Christmas Favorite

Tootsie Rolls has been an iconic brand of chewy candy that has been around for over a century. The inventor, Leo Hirschfield invented the Tootsie Roll in 1896 and named it after his daughter “Tootsie”. The candy has been manufactured in the United States, has taffy and caramel type qualities and does not melt during transportation or during the summer months.


Tootsie Roll History

In 1896, the founder Leo Hirshfield was an Austrailian immigrant wanted to create a “chocolate” candy that would be an cheap alternative to more expensive traditional chocolates.

Leo Hirschfeld

Leo started production of his new found candy and started selling them for a penny at a small shop in New York. Tootsie Roll sales began to take off and Leo had to produce more of his candy to meet demand of his new customers and had to move to a 5 story factory. It was the first candy to be individually wrapped, and the name of the company was changed to “The Sweets Company of America” and became a public traded company in 1922.

The low price of the Tootsie Roll made it a popular choice during America’s depression era. The success of the Tootsie Roll has inspired the company to create a new product, the Tootsie Pop (a lollipop with Tootsie Roll filling inside) was invented in 1931. The military liked the product so much becuase of the hardiness of the candy remained intact even under the most extreme conditions, they signed a contract with the candy company during World War II to supply the American soldiers with Tootsie Roll products in their field rations.

Today, TRI (Tootsie Roll Industries) has purchased a large number of other well known American candy makers related to the industry and produces a huge amount of candy products. They remain one of the largest candy manufacturers in the world with more than 64 million Tootsie Rolls produced daily.
