Pecan Pie Truffles: These festive truffles combine the rich flavors of pecan pie under a thin layer of smooth chocolate. Like traditional rum balls, these offer a slightly alcoholic kick, so be sure to monitor any underage guests.
Miracle Peanut Butter Crunch: This flaky candy, from Nicole Haley of Mirracole Morsels, combines layers of crisp caramel, creamy peanut butter and crunchy peanuts. Incredibly, it takes just 20 minutes to make and the only special equipment you need is a heatproof candy thermometer. Be sure to buy the freshest, highest-quality peanut butter and peanuts you can find.
