    1. Many people have the misconception that edible gifts have to be really involved, but the truth is, you don't necessarily need a whole day, obscure ingredients, or advanced kitchen skills to create your own signature holiday sundries. Peppermint fudge is a wonderful example of this: with just 15 minutes of prep, less than 10 basic ingredients, and no baking time whatsoever, you've got yourself an impressive batch of candy that's nearly big enough for all the friends on your gift list. Lightly coat a 9-inch square baking pan with nonstick spray. Line pan with two pieces parchment paper in both directions, leaving 2 inches of overhang on all sides; spray parchment. Place chocolate in a bowl. In a food processor, pulse candies until finely chopped. In a medium saucepan, combine candies, cream, marshmallows, butter, sugar, and salt over medium-high. Whisk until smooth, 5 minutes.

    2. Pour mixture into bowl with chocolate; let stand 1 minute, then stir until smooth. Pour into baking pan and refrigerate until set, 3 hours. Cut fudge into 1-1/2-inch squares. With a sharp knife, cut 18 candies in half; press a candy half into each square before serving or packing.
