    In large microwavable bowl, mix baking chips, cream and honey. Microwave on High about 1 minute 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in nuts. Cool about 30 minutes or until just slightly warm. Quickly stir in 1/2 cup of the candies. Spread evenly in pan. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup candies over top; press lightly into top. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until completely set.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    During the holidays, candy-coated chocolate candies are usually available in a red and green combination. If you can’t find just the red and green mixture, sort a multicolored bag to get enough of the red and green for this recipe. Use the remaining candies to stir into drop cookies or just for snacking.
  • tip 2
    White baking bars or white chocolate candy bars (12 oz total) can be substituted for the vanilla chips, but they are a bit more expensive.
