Cream Cheese Candy

I’m not a candy maker. If I am baking, I tend to make cookies, muffins or cakes (from a box). So as I’m making my way through Gooseberry Patch’s Christmas Kitchens cookbook, I decided to stretch myself.

I made Cream Cheese Candy. It just has three ingredients, though one of them is 2 POUNDS of powdered sugar! This recipe is from a lady in southern Indiana, so I am excited to be featuring a recipe from a fellow Hoosier!

Not sure this is how the candy is supposed to look like…I struggle with new recipes when there are not photos but they tasted good so even if the pieces aren’t picture perfect, it’s OK.

I think these would be great on a Christmas treats table.

If you try this recipe and your candy turns out differently, be sure to let me know (share a photo).

Just a note…I only have a hand mixer and this was a challenge for it!
