Candy for Christmas

Sunday I made a couple batch of candy for the Christmas Season.  The first is called "Rudolph Noses".  I found this candy on "Pinterest".  The recipe is just Pretzel Circles, Hersey Kisses and Christmas M & M's.
They are so easy.  Next picture is a close up.  
They look just like Reindeer noses.  I put parchment paper on the cookie sheet and then the pretzels.  Unwrap a Hersey's Kiss and place in the center.  Put in oven at 250 degrees for approximately 2 - 3 minutes.  
Bring out of the oven and press a M & M into the center.  So easy.  Let cool and they are ready to eat. Yummy!

This is the Biscotti in the oven.  There is a batch of Cherry chip and Chocolate Chip and also a batch of Walnut and Date.  I decided to use up condiments from the pantry.  Now to slice them and back in the oven they go to dry out.
Here is the finished product.  They are so good with a hot cup of coffee!
These peanut clusters are so easy to make.  The recipe follows:
Crockpot Chocolate Candy
2 lbs. (36 oz.) salted dry-roasted peanuts
4 oz. (4 squares) German's sweet chocolate
12 oz. pkg. semisweet chocolate chips
2 1/2 lbs. white almond bark
Put peanuts in the bottom of a 4qt. slow cooker.  Layer the chocolate over the peanuts, beginning with the sweet chocolate, followed by the chocolate chips, and then the almond bark. Set the temp on the low setting and cook for 3 hours.  Do not stir mixture. After 3 hours, stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until smooth.  Drop the candy into the small cupcake liners, using about 1 tablespoon per liner.  All the candy to cool completely before removing the cupcake liners. Makes 85 to 90.  
I did not remove the liners.  Easier to serve with the liners on.  This is the easiest candy I have ever made and the clusters are so good.
Enjoy your baking!
Thanks for stopping by.
