I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Peppermint Bark (

This was the fastest, easiest candy-type recipe I've tried. So easy and so delicious!

1-24 oz package almond bark (vanilla candy coating)
~8 oz hard peppermint candies (40 mints or 1 c finely ground)

Melt the almond bark in the microwave until it is completely melted, smooth and creamy. Stir often while melting and check the package for more details. Unwrap the mints and place in a blender or food processor. Chop mints until they are like a fine saw dust. Add crushed mints to the melted candy coating. Place about 2.5 feet of aluminum foil out on a hard surface. Pour candy mixture onto the foil and spread out so it is about 1/8" and less thick. Once the candy is hard (about 20 minutes) break it into pieces.
