Homemade Holiday Candy, Christmas Recipes and Holiday Gift Basket Ideas

Homemade Holiday Candy, By Teresa Opdycke - The joys of the holidays have always included not just eating sweet treats, but the actual making of homemade candy. We would all get together on a cold day in December to share ingredients, funny stories, and memories as our mother shared her expert candy making techniques. For awhile after my mother passed on we continued the tradition of bonding over sugary, chocolaty, sweet creations that tickle the tongue. As we each grew in ways that no one would ever believe possible, we left behind the sweet tradition. It was indeed a wonderful time and I highly recommend getting a few family members or friends together to not just make, but celebrate the holidays with the charming tradition of candy making. The recipes we used came from our mother and from her mother and one from my father. It’s time to turn on the Christmas music, get out the bowls, spatulas and candy thermometer. It’s time to make Christmas candies.

Divinity

Never a favorite of mine, but my sister loved and still loves divinity and makes this candy every year. I’m a chocolate freak, but she’s a lover of the creamy, smooth textured swirls of this divine homemade candy. My mother always admonished us with these bits of advice: If it’s raining or wet outside your divinity will not set up and may be sugary. Do not ever touch the side of the bowl with your wooden spoon or spatula; the results will be sugary candy.

2 cups sugar
½ cup of white Karo
½ cup of water
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped or whole English walnuts or pecans
Boil sugar, Karo, and water together until a little dropped in water turns brittle. (I’ll be perfectly honest here, I’ve never done this. I watched my mother do it many times. So I wish you well!) Pour the syrup over stiffly beaten egg whites. Add chopped nuts if you desire and the vanilla. Beat until your arm feels like it’s going to fall off or the mixture begins to hold a shape. Drop on a buttered platter or parchment paper. Place one pecan or English walnut on top. Color can be added to the white froth for a festive look.

Chocolate Fudge or Mom’s Millionaire

I have no idea why she called this recipe simply millionaire, perhaps because she thought it tasted like a million bucks and so it does. It’s a very rich fudge that comes out creamy and if death by chocolate seems appropriate to you, then you’ll love this recipe. Over the years I’ve toned my chocolate fudge down a bit.

1 pound of chocolate stars (Brach’s makes these star shaped chocolates)
2 packages of tidbits (most people call these chocolate chips, I recommend Nestle’s)
8 ounce jar of marshmallow cream
4 cups granulated sugar
1 can Pet’s Evaporated Milk (I use Carnation, but to this day my sister insists Pet’s is the only canned milk to use for this recipe)
In a large bowl place all the chocolate stars, chocolate chips, and marshmallow cream. (Expect fingers to dip in for a quick taste of chocolate.) In a pan on medium heat add sugar and milk. Bring these ingredients to a boil. Boil for four and a half minutes. Remove from stove and pour over the chocolates. Stir! Stir fast and furious before the fudge begins to set up. I do hope you have an 8x9 pan buttered and ready to pour the fudge into. You might need another small pan; too, depending on how thick you want your pan of fudge to be. You can add nuts to the chocolate in the bowl if your family enjoys nutty fudge. Now for the best part…lick the bowl. There’s nothing more delightful than warm fudge! By the way this recipe makes around 4 pounds of fudge, plenty to give away as gifts.

Peanut Butter Fudge

I enjoy peanut fudge as long as it’s dipped in chocolate. It is a favorite among true peanut butter connoisseurs though and you might enjoy trying it. I’m sure my mother doubled and quadrupled this recipe, there were six of us, there is no way that one pan of fudge would have survived the holiday onslaught of sweet teeth.

2 cups brown sugar
¾ cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup peanut butter
Boil sugar and milk until it forms a soft ball when tested in cold water. (I’m not sure, but I think that means it should be syrupy and then set up when it comes in contact with cold water. Fudge making was never an exact science at our house) Once it’s tested, let the mixture cool, add peanut butter and vanilla. Beat until creamy and then pour into a buttered pan.

Penuche

My father’s favorite fudge was penuche, a brown sugar concoction that was always somewhat sugary. Sometime during the holidays he would suddenly decide it was time to make penuche. Off he’d go to the kitchen to make his favorite homemade candy. I have never tried my hand at this fudge, but please be my guest and I hope you find it to be as delicious as he did.

2 cups brown sugar
¾ cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup butter
I have no instructions on how to make penuche. I suggest trial and error with a hearty good luck!

These are just a few of my family’s favorite homemade candy recipes. There were many more that we welcomed into the fold like Buckeyes, chocolate covered cherries, pulled taffy, peanut brittle, and white bark. Looking back I don’t think it was the candy that made it all so grand, but the special memories that we created as we stirred, mixed, rolled, and dipped. At the end of the day we each took home containers filled to the brim with candies made from more than just ingredients, made with love. My wish for you is that you discover a wondrous way to celebrate the holidays with family and friends that leaves you with precious holiday memories.

The Selfish Act Of Giving by Laura Tucker

Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems.

At first thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are truly surprised by it, is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves.

When I shop for a gift for someone I try to to find something that let's them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is something they can look back on and say, "Laura really knows me and appreciates the fact that we have this in common." Conversely, it's great to be on the other end and realize your friend or family member cares about you so much that they took the time to find this unique item that you both enjoy. It's a personalized gift that you know was bought just for you.

Often it doesn't even have to be a material gift; an act can mean all the same things. A friend recently had told me no one understood what she wanted on her birthday. She was always cooking dinner for everyone else on their birthday and was hoping someone would finally do it for her. She told her family that's what she wanted most. Yet everyone totally misread what she was looking for and took her out to dinner. While she had a nice dinner and enjoyed their company, it wasn't what she was looking for.

My friend was looking for someone to say I'm listening to what you want. She was looking for someone to put as much into a gift for her as she does for them. I wanted her to know that I was listening and that there was someone out there that truly understood her. I showed up on her doorstep the day of her birthday with a pan of mostaccioli, garlic bread, salad, salad dressing and a bottle of wine. She had told me eating my mostaccioli one time earlier that I could make it for her any time.

The joy on my friend's face was what I was looking and hoping for. She was excited, not that she didn't have to cook dinner for herself, but that someone was willing to make that effort for her. She was also now secure with the knowledge that there was someone out there that understood what she wanted and that truly listened. She told me later that she had told everyone she knew that I had done that for her. She wanted others to know that we were able to connect in that way.

I try to do this for all the gifts I give on Christmas, but the process can sometimes be daunting. We get so busy at that time of the year, and depending on how many people are on a gift list, finding a personalized gift for each person can be time-consuming. Usually some end up being very personalized, some just something I hope the person will enjoy.

But there's always that one gift. There's always that one gift every year I just can't wait until it is opened. This is the one gift I have found that I know will show that I understand and listen. Seeing the look from the recipient of acknowledgment of our relationship and of what I put into finding that particular item is all I need to make the gift worth every penny and every moment that was put into it.

Sure, I enjoy when the same is done for me. I enjoy knowing that someone understands and listens to me as well, but I don't get the same sense of accomplishment when the situation is in reverse. I don't get to pat myself on the back for a job well done. I don't get the validation.

What it comes down to is I'm looking to please myself when I give a great gift. I'm looking to say I set out to do this and accomplished it. I set out to find the perfect gift to show someone I understand and care. It is not at all selfless. I did it for myself in the end run. It is better to give than to receive, and that is because when giving, we're still receiving.

    See the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas

    A city where one can see the Alamo and visit SeaWorld all in one day, San Antonio is truly a place of wonder and tradition.  Tourists flock there each year to explore the area that combines the Wild West with New Mexico, but doesn't exclude modern-day city life. They learn about history while having plenty of fun.

    San Antonio is located on the San Antonio River in Bexar County, and is the county seat.  It is the eighth largest city in the nation in the U.S. The estimated population was 1,214,725 as of 2003.  The area got its name from explorers who arrived in the area on "St. Anthony's" birthday.  Some cities that are near San Antonio are Castle Hills, Terrell Hills, Olmos Park, Alamo Heights and Balcones Heights.

    Things to Do in San Antonio

    Many visitors in San Antonio enjoy the River Walk, or Paseo del Rio (http://www.thesanantonioriverwalk.com/).  It has become the most popular attraction in the area.  Here one can take a soothing stroll, dine out at one of the fine restaurants, relax in a cafe or even go shopping.  It appeals to all personalities.

    One can walk back in time at The Alamo (http://www.thealamo.org) in San Antonio.  This 18th-century mission church is where Jim Bowie and Davy Crockett along with many others stood against Mexican soldiers to win independence for Texas.  The Alamo has become a state symbol for freedom.  The mission is beautifully restored and features tours where one can learn about its amazing history.  There's also a gift shop and great memorabilia.

    The Alamo isn't the only historic site in San Antonio.  The Mission San Jose is a Spanish mission on the frontier, founded in 1720.  It's the largest of five missions in the area.  The "rose window" at the mission is a must-see while touring the area. 

    Another historic site is the King William Historic District, where there are many mansions with beautiful landscaping.  This area was settled by German merchants during the 1800s; they were very wealthy.  Also, the Casa Navarro State Historical Park is an interesting site to learn about the area's history.
