Happy first week of December. Wow! Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner? Between farm life and blog life, things have been pretty crazy. But it is the most wonderful time of year. So much excitement in the air, right?

So far I have finished decorating the house (minus our Christmas tree because we are waiting until Gabrielle comes home from college), put a significant dent in my Christmas shopping list and started to share some fun Christmas recipes and crafts here.

I am officially kicking my holiday baking off with this delicious Christmas Gumdrop Nougat recipe. Nougat, you say? Before you click away and leave me in the dust, hear me out first.

It’s a simple recipe. I promise. Pinky promise to be exact. It’s made with marshmallows and white chocolate so what’s not to love.

A double boiler, spatula and a baking dish are the only pieces of equipment you need too. So, if you are not “the baker extraordinaire”, have no fear because you probably have these items in your kitchen.

    Our office received a basket of retro-candy last week. The first thing to go was the nougat pieces with colorful jellies. I would never have thought they could be that easy to make. Thanks for sharing!

    Wishes for tasty dishes,
    Linda

  2. I love this candy! The first time I made it with the double boiler… and after that… i just used the microwave to melt the chocolate and marshmallows, it comes out the same for me.

  3. Just made this in the double boiler. Was hard to stir at end with spatula so switched to a small wooden spoon and broke my spoon. Hope it tastes ok. Have to spread it in the pan quickly I found out.

    1. Just tested it this morning after cutting. Used a pizza cutter as suggested and it worked great! My family will love this!

  4. These are delish, easy & worth a try. Made a batch for Christmas gifts for friends/neighbors. One recipe makes a lot. Cut them in 1″ pieces & put them in mini holiday paper cups. Also used a larger pan than an 8×8 as instructed….glad I did.

  5. Just made
    Used dbl boiler. Used gummy worm red & green pieces; food colors ran some when mixed in giving a funky “Tye Dye” effect. Look good.
    When making just keep working it.‼️????????

  6. I made 2 batches, the 1st took forever to melt the marshmallows & chocolate together so the 2nd batch I melted the chips over a double boiler, then microwaved the marshmallows for 2 min on high & mixed together. OMG, that was so much easier. They taste great. I’ve got them cooling down for the night right now????????????
