1 - Salted Pretzel Toffee

Top 5 Christmas Candies and Confections

I'm going to start with one of my favourite Christmas treats ever. It's a salted pretzel toffee that is so easy to make and tastes deliciously crunchy. Just a warning that if you're planning to make it to give away, make a separate batch for yourself!

2 - Italian Chocolate Salami

Top 5 Christmas Candies and Confections

I'm sorry Dear Reader but I won't ever stop pushing you to make this chocolate salami. It's THAT delicious and no it's not meat but chocolate!

3 - Rum "Truffle" Truffles

Top 5 Christmas Candies and Confections

Truffles in summer? These chocolate truffles resemble winter truffles and are flavoured with rum. They're easy to shape like a truffle and are actually very simple made with chocolate, cream, butter and rum!

4 - Pocky Winter Forest

Top 5 Christmas Candies and Confections

Is Pocky a candy or a biscuit? Probably both and I made these so long ago but Mr NQN continues to ask when I'll make my Pocky Christmas forest again. If you have kids give this a go at least once and you'll be remembered as a legend.

5 - White Chocolate Rocky Road

Top 5 Christmas Candies and Confections

This is another blast from the past but remains my favourite EVER Rocky Road. It's a luxe Rocky Road made using white chocolate, Turkish delight, honey roasted macadamias, coconut and cranberries. Even people that don't love white chocolate love it!

So tell me Dear Reader, are you ready for Christmas? What puts you in the Christmas spirit?
