These bonbons are a bit unusual--they use marshmallows as the base of the candy, so the filling has a sweet vanilla flavor underneath all the chewy coconut. This video recipe will show you how easy it is to make these sweet and chewy coconut bonbons in just a few minutes.

2. Turtle Candy

With just 3 ingredients, these classic candies couldn't be simpler. Toasted pecans are clustered together and drenched with melted caramel and chocolate. This is also a good recipe for young helpers, who might enjoy arranging the nuts into turtle shapes.

Granola Bar Candy is an easy microwave candy recipe that tastes like a granola bar. Wholesome oats combine with sweet brown sugar, honey, nuts, and dried fruit to produce a delicious chewy treat that is healthier than typical candies. Try adding your favorite dried fruits and nuts to this recipe.

Milky Way Balls are rice crispy treats with a special surprise melted in--Milky Way candy bars! The gooey, rich, crunchy balls are dipped in chocolate for a beautiful, tasty finishing touch. Kids will love seeing their favorite candy bars transformed into an entirely different candy.

6. Chocolate-Covered Strawberries (video recipe)

I can't think of an easier candy recipe than this. Fresh strawberries are dipped in chocolate melted in the microwave--and that's it! But the end result tastes anything but simple, and the combination of juicy berries and rich chocolate make even the most humble meals end on a special note.

7. Peanut Caramel Chocolate Cups

Peanut Caramel Chocolate Cups are chocolate candy cups with a delicious salted peanut caramel inside. The combination of bittersweet chocolate, sweet creamy caramel, crunchy nuts, and flaky sea salt is unbeatable. Making the chocolate cups takes a little time, but I think it's worth it to spend a few extra minutes for such a gourmet-tasting treat.

8. Cranberry Cashew Chocolate Bark

Cranberry-Cashew Chocolate Bark is a delightfully chunky bark candy that features two types of chocolate, sweet-tart cranberries, and the salty crunch of roasted cashews. The swirled chocolate makes them look fancier than they are, so don't be intimidated by this simple bark candy.

9. Chocolate Caramel Apples

Chocolate Caramel Apples are a decadent way to enjoy a serving of fruit. Crisp apples are covered with a layer of caramel, a layer of chocolate, and a coating of chopped candy bars. I like to use Snickers bars, because the chocolate and the caramel of the apple is a nice accompaniment to the peanut-nougat flavor of the Snickers, but any chopped candy you enjoy will work.

10. Microwave Fudge

Try this easy fudge recipe, and you'll be amazed at how simple it is to make and how quickly it comes together.
