I love See’s Candies. I’ve never had candy from them that I didn’t like. Everything is always so great which got me thinking — you now what makes a great holiday gift? See’s Candies! I’m serious!

On top of the boxed candies you can get them, they have themed ones too! This is the Holiday Fancy Gift Box-Holly. In this particular box of candies is a unique assortment of fruit truffles, along with their finest milk, dark and white chocolates, including Cashew Brittle, Caramel, Divinity Puff and Almond Square. My favorite is the dark chocolate and caramel. I’m partial to those flavors though!

The Christmas Gold Wreath Box is another great holiday choice! This elegant assortment includes some of their most-adored milk, dark and white chocolates, including brittles, truffles, nuts, chews and two special Milk Chocolate Butters topped with pretty candy poinsettias. For me, I loved the Milk Chocolate Butters.

See’s Candies make a great gift for anyone on your Christmas list (and makes a great gift for yourself too!). Since I know you all have one of those hard to shop for people, I have arranged for one lucky reader to win a $25 See’s Candies gift card. Here’s what you need to do:

Super Duper Cupcakes

superdupercupcakesCupcakes are the hottest dessert today—and these treats from cupcake entrepreneur Elaine Cohen are super-duper delicious and gorgeous, too! They come in yummy chocolate or luscious vanilla, topped with candy, or dyed and decorated with dazzling designs. Best of all, thanks to big, beautiful photos and how-to illustrations, every cupcake-loving kid can make them, either from scratch or starting with store-bought pastries and mixes. So why buy…when it’s easy to bake and decorate your own?

This book makes me feel like I can actually do this!  The directions are written well and super easy to follow.  I love that they literally are step by step.  They aren’t including any weird ingredients that you won’t be able at your local grocery store.  There are ton of pictures too, so you can easily replicate these cupcake ideas.

If you want to decorate your own cupcakes but are scared, you need to get your hands on Super Duper Cupcakes!  It is a must have cookbook if you want to do your own decorating!

See’s Holiday Giveaway!

As usual, See’s Candies does not disappoint for the holidays. They have tons of great offerings, and there truly is something for everyone to pick from. My husband loves their white mint truffles. I personally am a fan of the Marshmallow Trees. However, there are gift baskets and gift box sets you can give to others too. There is a sampler pack, gift boxes of chocolate, and even ones that have nuts in them!  You can’t go wrong with anything you get from See’s.  It’s high quality great candies that everyone loves.

Since I love See’s and I know you all love See’s, I’ve got 5 gift cards for See’s Candies that can be used on a pound of candy.  Here’s what you need to do to win one:
