With the winter holidays just around the corner, avid bakers everywhere are dusting off their mixing bowls and poring over recipe books to find the perfect combination of baked goods to make this holiday season. Cookies, cakes, pies, and more are all on the menu, and many baking enthusiasts are looking for ways to make their desserts stand out. Here are a few ways to incorporate Christmas candy from Wockenfuss into your baked goods this holiday season. Be sure to stop by our holiday open house from Friday, November 6th to Sunday, November 8th to see all of our seasonal offerings!
Add Christmas Candy to Stained Glass Cookies
There are plenty of cookie recipes out there, and many of them include Christmas candy among their ingredients. Stained glass cookies, for example, are simple sugar cookies that feature hard candy “windows” in the middle. Our ginger cuts and butterscotch wheels are ideal for cookies like these. Simply cut cookies from your favorite sugar cookie dough, create a cutout in the center, fill the center with crushed hard candy, and bake. The hard candy melts and resolidifies, resembling stained glass. These cookies are fun to make, eat, and decorate. Just be sure to use parchment paper or aluminum foil to avoid sticking!
Starlight Cookies Feature a Minty Surprise
Another popular treat this season is a starlight cookie, featuring our dark chocolate mint wafers. Recipes for this treat typically include a sweet and sugary cookie that is topped with walnuts and filled with a surprise chocolate center. Our dark chocolate mint wafers are infused with peppermint oil, giving your baked goods a refreshing and festive kick.
Elevate Your Desserts With Candy Decorations
If pies, cakes, and other sweet treats are more your style, Wockenfuss offers all kinds of Christmas candy with which to decorate. Nonpareils and Jordan almonds are classics when it comes to decorating cakes and cupcakes, and an elegant shard of peppermint bark adds a focal point to cheesecakes and other desserts. No gingerbread house would be complete without a whimsical collection of gummi fruit slices, spearmint leaves, and gummi trees and snowmen — assuming the candy doesn’t get eaten in the meantime, that is. With Christmas candy from Wockenfuss, you can add the perfect finishing touch to all of your holiday desserts with ease!
Christmas Candy From Wockenfuss is Delicious on its Own
Of course, most folks just choose to enjoy our candy as-is. Can you blame them? Our hand-packed specialties, truffles, and fudge are irresistible, and all of our solid milk chocolate holiday foils make excellent stocking stuffers. Whether you are looking for a flavorful addition to your homemade desserts or simply want a sweet gift for your family, Wockenfuss has a massive collection of Christmas candy to choose from.
