Whether you call them sweets, lollies or candy there are lots of sweet treat recipes to choose from including toffee, honeycomb, fudge, caramel and marshmallow.
Instead of mince pies, try these mince pinwheels. You can use your own home made fruit mince if you like but we just use it out of a jar for this recipe.

A great snack for children's lunch boxes. Coco Pops or mini M&Ms can also be added to the recipe for a change. Just exchange 1/4 to 1/2 cup of Rice Bubbles with the alternative.
