The girls at Liddabit Sweets know a lot about great candies. So when Splendid Table asked them to share their two easiest and quickest holiday candies, you better believe they had two great recipes to share. And these two candies require no heating or candy thermometers — truly fast and simple. Check them out!

First up: buttermints, the chalky-looking mints found at many restaurants — only these taste much better and lend themselves to a variety of flavors beyond mint. And they don’t even require heating, just a solid 6 to 8 minutes in a mixer, along with some kneading and drying overnight.

And if you’re looking for a quick sweet of the chocolate variety, buckeyes come together in a flash. Blend up the creamy peanut butter filling, with a touch of sea salt, and dip in smooth dark chocolate.
