This season, there's no need to stress or spend hours in the kitchen. Serve this simple sweet treat at your next party or wrap it up beautifully for your friends.

Chocolate Hazelnut Bark

Somewhere between candy, cookie, and nut brittle lies this dessert that combines hazelnut meal (very finely ground nuts), a splash of Frangelico, and chocolate-hazelnut spread for a triple hit of nutty goodness. This sophisticated dessert, with its large, pizza-sized shape and artfully pebbled texture, only takes 21 minutes to make, so baking a second batch couldn't be easier.
Lemon White Chocolate Chewy Crispy Bars
Stir 1 tablespoon grated lemon rind into melted marshmallows before adding cereal. Press cereal mixture into prepared pan. Heat 4 ounces chopped premium white chocolate in microwave at HIGH 1½ minutes or until melted, stirring every 20 seconds; drizzle over cereal mixture. Refrigerate for 15 minutes before slicing.
Delicious and gorgeous, this chocolaty candy is topped with toasted nuts for an extra crunch. Tip: for crisp toffee, spread it thin; for crunch, go thick.
Truffles typically have the added richness of cream and butter. These ingredients help stabilize chocolate, which tends to scorch, separate, or become grainy if not heated carefully. We add corn syrup and evaporated milk for smooth, creamy confections.
Chocolate Almond Cherry Crisps
These no-bake cookies taste like bite-sized candy bars and are terrific with a cup of coffee. Prepare them up to two days in advance, and store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
