To me, nothing tastes more like Christmas than these sweet, salty and crunchy butterscotch candies. They aren’t much to look at, but they are super simple to make, and I guarantee that your friends and family will rave about them.
For as far back as I can remember, my Nana always had a plate of these butterscotch corn flake candy on the Christmas snack table. One year, my mom got the recipe and started adding them to her plates of Christmas cookies, and so the butterscotch corn flakes got spread around to even more friends and family.
After I moved away from home, I started making them for my own friends and, after I got married, my husband’s family. I’ve made them in Oregon, Florida, Sicily, and now southern California, and the recipe has been passed from friend to friend all across the country. I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t love them, and if you make these for your friends, be prepared to share the recipe!
With only three ingredients, and no baking required, these are probably the simplest holiday treat you will ever make. Enjoy!
