You could stop here, or you could add finely crushed peppermint, caramel bits (do not freeze the candy if you add caramel bits, the caramel may get too hard) or candy-coated pieces.
A great way to package the crock pot candy (or any portable sweets) is with Rubbermaid TakeAlongs®. These are seriously the best way to keep my cookies fresh! I scooped up several containers from Target when I was buying ingredients. You can find these containers on the end cap near the other food storage containers. These containers work well with hot and cold food (perfect for pot-lucks, cookie
There are only 9 MORE WEEKS until Christmas! I better get baking, I have treats to deliver!
