Chocolate Covered Peanut Candy

I made my Christmas candy for my coworkers at the office and thought I'd share the "so easy" recipe with you.  You will need 12 ozs of candy quick/almond bark which can be purchased where the baking products are - like Hersey's chocolate chips.  12 ozs of semi-sweet chocolate chips and about 32 ozs of dry roasted peanuts.

Melt the candy bark first and then add the chocolate chips until melted together.  Remove from the heat and then add the peanuts and mix. 

 Pour globs on some parchment paper or wax paper.  Let it air dry for about 2 hours until the candy hardends up.  

You can put them in tin cans, a plate with Christmas cookies or make your own gift bags . So simple and yummy.

I did a lot of shopping this weekend - just have to get busy and start the wrapping.  It is creeping up on us - just a few days left!  And speaking of just a few days left - I still have to finish a Christmas present.  Here is a peek......

I've got it pinned down - just have to sew the applique and then add the tongues at the ends and hopefully it will come out to be a very nice table runner made out of wool. 

 This will be my last blog for year.  Taking some time out to enjoy the holidays with my family. Here's wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and let's all hope for a wonderful New Year!  

See ya in 2012!

Blessings to all,
