Making candy at Christmas is a great way to keep traditions alive. My grandfather and my mother made candies, caramel popcorn, all kinds of baked goods too. One thing I remember is Caramels. These are soft and chewy, melt in your mouth and are very addicting. They make great gifts for neighbors and are perfect treats for most anyone on your list.
Put them in a fancy jar with a ribbon and you're good to go.
