Check out our latest recipes from Better Homes and Gardens magazine: homemade Christmas candy, Scott Peacock's pot roast, easy dinners, and more.
Sandwich Cookie Pops
Coconut & Grapefruit Gumdrops
Combine a Chambord-spiked cookie, raspberry buttercream, and white chocolate to make a sophisticated treat.
Orange & Nut Toffee
A childhood favorite gets a makeover by infusing the candy with bold flavors and cutting them into sleek squares.
This buttery brittle features candied orange peel, walnuts, and cashews for a brighter twist on toffee.
Candied Cherry Opera Fudge
These homemade marshmallows feature traditional eggnog spices and a cap of white chocolate.
Mint Chocolate Slab
We've added the theatrical flourish of candied cherries to this 1960s classic and formed the fudge in a loaf pan so it's easy to slice.
Salt & Pink Peppercorn Caramels
For a stunning (and fuss-free) dessert, melt chocolate, pour it over mint patties, and scatter candies on top.
A sprinkling of coarse salt adds crunch and brings out the creamy sweetness of these caramels. Pink peppercorns have a mild citrus-sweet heat that adds a light flavor and color.
Key ingredients -- oranges and coconuts -- from the classic holiday dessert, ambrosia, are tossed with crisp lettuce for a light brunch salad.

This flavorful strata can be assembled the night before. Just add the eggs when you wake up and pop it in the oven.
Pork & Sweet Potato Stew
