Sweetness reigned in the November/December GRIT, as author Connie L. Moore penned “Seven Heavenly Candy Recipes” and wowed us with recipes for Divinity, Toasted Pecan Cream Fudge, French Fudge, Chocolate-Walnut Fudge, Pineapple Fudge, Chocolate-Filled Dried Fruits and Heavenly Hash.

After a search of GRIT’s recipe archives, as well as the archives of our sister publication CAPPER'S, we selected the following recipes as perfect choices for this year’s holiday treats. Make this season a sweet one.

CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES
