Making Christmas candy and treats shouldn’t be hard.
A lot of people spend hours in the kitchen in the weeks leading up to Christmas to make treats for their friends and co-workers.
I know I’m one of those people. All of that melting and baking and rolling can take a toll, though.
Easy Christmas treats are the solution. Melting chocolate can be easy (even if you don’t have a double broiler) and you can dip just about anything in it and then throw some Christmas sprinkles on to make it festive.
I did that with sugar creme wafers and they turned out gorgeous. Just dip half of a wafer in melted chocolate, place on some parchment paper, and sprinkle Christmas sprinkles on top. Simple, quick, and tasty.
Pack these up in a Christmas tin and ship them off to people you love. They’ll be dazzled–and never know how easy it was to make!
Chocolate Dipped Sugar Wafers
A simple Christmas treat that's sweet and chocolatey.
- In a large glass bowl, break apart chocolate. Microwave chocolate according to package instructions (usually 30 seconds, stir, 30 seconds again, stir, then microwave in 10 second increments until melted).
- Prepare two large baking sheets with parchment paper on top. Dip half of a sugar wafer in melted chocolate, making sure to coat all sides. Place on parchment paper and immediately top with Christmas sprinkles.
- Let chocolate cool completely before packaging up. You can put each tray in the freezer for about 5 minutes to speed up the hardening process.
