Christmas Candy

I made a batch of Christmas candy that was a big hit with
the kids. I used the candy corn recipe, and added green
and red food coloring. It took long enough that I had to
place the candy mixture in the microwave for 10 seconds
several times, but I thought it turned out well. What do
you think?

I also made a small batch of fudge today from the Better
Homes and Gardens Cookbook
