Every year I make homemade candy for friend, family, teachers and random people who stop by unexpectedly with gifts. Doesn't that just put you in an awkward situation? Someone shows up at your house with a box of Christmas cookies or some homemade bread and you did not even stop to think that maybe you should have given them something? I always designate a few boxes of my homemade candy as 'emergency' gifts! This is a really easy to make recipe for homemade candy and you can find most of the ingredients either in the grocery store or a craft store like Michaels. For a homemade double boiler, put a pot of water on the stove with only a few inches of water in the bottom. Turn the water on medium/low and put a large glass bowl over it so it sets just above or barely touching the water. Put your chocolate in there to melt, stirring occasionally. No need to have a specialty double boiler that just takes up space in your cabinet all year if you are only going to use it on homemade candy in December!
