1. Chocolate Fudge
Melt 1/2 stick butter, 4 cups marshmallows, 1 cup cream, 2 cups sugar and a pinch of salt in a saucepan. Simmer, stirring, 5 minutes. Off the heat, stir in 3 cups chocolate chips until smooth. Spread in a foil-lined 9-by-13-inch pan. Let cool and cut into squares.

2. Chocolate Fruit Jellies
Melt 8 ounces chopped bittersweet chocolate with 2 teaspoons shortening in the microwave. Dip Strawberry, Peach or Kiwi Jellies in the melted chocolate. Chill until firm.

3.Chocolate Truffles


Bring 1 cup cream and 1/2 stick butter to a boil in a saucepan; pour over 1 pound finely chopped chocolate in a bowl. When melted, add 1 teaspoon vanilla and stir until smooth. Chill until firm. Scoop with a spoon and roll into balls, then roll in crushed peppermint candies, chopped nuts or cocoa powder. Chill.

4. Chocolate Caramels
Line an 8-inch-square pan with foil and brush with oil. Melt 2 sticks butter in a saucepan, then add 2 cups sugar, 1 1/4 cups light corn syrup, a 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk and 1/4 cup cocoa powder. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until a candy thermometer reaches 248 degrees F, about 15 minutes. Pour into the prepared pan and cool. Cut into squares.

5. Almond Nougat
Microwave 1 cup each sugar and honey in a microwave-safe glass measuring cup until a candy thermometer reaches 290 degrees F, 10 to 15 minutes. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat 2 egg whites on high speed until stiff peaks form. With the motor running, drizzle in the hot honey mixture and beat until thick, 8 minutes. On low speed, add 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 2 1/2 cups almonds. Transfer to an oiled parchment paper–lined baking sheet; flatten to 1 inch thick with a rolling pin. Cool 2 hours, then cut into squares.

6. Honeycomb Candy
Boil 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1/4 cup each water and light corn syrup in a saucepan over medium-high heat, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reaches 300 degrees F, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon baking soda and pour quickly onto an oiled rimmed baking sheet (do not spread). Let harden, then break into pieces. Melt 8 ounces chopped milk chocolate with 2 teaspoons shortening in the microwave; dip the candy in the chocolate. Let set.

7. Cheesecake Bites
Line 36 mini-muffin cups with paper liners. Mix 3/4 cup finely crushed graham crackers, 1 tablespoon sugar and 2 tablespoons melted butter; press into the liners and chill until firm. Blend 8 ounces cream cheese, 1/4 cup each sour cream and confectioners’ sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon each vanilla and lemon zest; fold in 1/2 cup whipped cream. Pipe or spoon into the crusts; chill 1 hour. Top with cherry or plum jam.

8.Frangipane Bites
Line two 24-cup mini-muffin pans with paper liners. Combine 1 stick softened butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 eggs and 1/3 cup each almond paste and cake flour in a food processor; blend until smooth. Divide among the liners, filling one-third of the way. Press a dried fig or prune into each one and sprinkle with sliced almonds and coarse sugar. Bake at 350 degrees F until golden, 12 to 15 minutes.
