Edible Gift Idea: Chocolate-Dipped Agave Candies

Don’t these crunchy candies look good? And they’re made with only five ingredients! These are going in our holiday care packages, for sure.

These candies are made by boiling agave syrup and raw sugar, and then adding baking soda to make the cooked sugar bubble up. Poured onto a baking sheet, the sugar sets and hardens into a crunchy, caramel-flavored candy.

These remind us of the honeycomb candy bars we made earlier this year, but we really like that these are bite-sized. This makes them easier to dip in chocolate and easier to nibble on without making a mess of sugar dust.

We can’t wait to make a batch!
