These Gumdrop Nougat Candies taste like nostalgia and Christmas’ past. And I love them. They’re sweet, soft, chewy and so delicious. And very easy to make. Create a batch and share them with friends, give them as gifts, and make sure to have them on your holiday treat plate!
Who knew that marshmallows + white chocolate chips = a chewy and delicious nougat?! And with festive red and green gumdrops, this is a perfect Christmas treat.
I love that this treat is no bake, and that it can come together in just minutes. All you need to do is melt together a little butter, mini marshmallows and white chocolate chips, then stir in chopped gumdrops. Then spread it out into a parchment paper lined pan.
Christmas Gumdrop Nougat Candy Recipe Tip
The mixture is pretty sticky, so a little trick I use is to lightly grease a small square of parchment paper then use that to spread and pat the mixture down. Put it in the fridge for a few hours (overnight is best) to set…it needs to be completely cooled to cut it.
2 Tbsp Butter
– 2 Packs white Chocolate Chips
– 2 Bags Mini Marshmallows.
Melt together and stir until Smooth, Add 2 Cups Gumdrops ( Whole ). Stir and spread in a parchment paper lined 9x13in pan. Chill overnight in Fridge for at least 24 hours. Cut in squares. Should be kept in fridge but can be left out for few hours when you get the munchies.
