During the holidays, I can't seem to get enough of little candy dishes (fully stocked, of course) scattered around the house. They come in handy when you have company or even when you’re by yourself and your sweet tooth starts to act up. Caramel candies are an easy and long-lasting treat for times like these and also make great hostess gift during the holidays.
