Karen Bennett


2 Tbsp Butter
2 Cups White Chocolate Chips
2 1/4 Mini Marshmallows
1 1/2 Cups Red and Green Gumdrops
(you can buy the Christmas bells at dollar tree and toss out the white ones)

1. Line a 8x8 square pan with parchment paper (use a rectangle baking dish if doubling)
2. Cut up the red and green gumdrops.
3. Melt together the butter, white chocolate chips and marshmallows on low to medium heat. Stir constantly to keep from burning, until it's smooth and the white chocolate is melted. Remove from heat and let stand for a minute or two.
4. Stir in the gumdrops and pour directly into lined pan.
5. Mixture will be sticky, you can use a greased piece of parchment paper to help pat the mixture flat and smooth (careful it's hot!)
6. Put pan in the refrigerator to cool at least 2 hours until set. Best to leave it overnight and cut into desired square sizes the next morning.

*Tip- When making candy recipes leave the ones that cool in the refrigerator in their pans overnight and cut them up for serving the next day.
