A box of quartered DOTS work really well for holiday nougets. Just get a movie box (about a $1) and quarter into a bowl.
Combine white chocolate & marshmallows.
This process can take about 10-12 minutes and must be done slowly and while stirring
Combine with Gum Drops
Fold quartered gum drops into the mixture with a spatula.

Mixture is going to be sticky, so make sure you check our #1 tip for making sure this doesn't stick to your hands.
Cut and Serve!
Use a sharp knife to cut into 30 squares. Serve gumdrop candy immediately or refrigerate, covered until ready to serve.
Store pieces in an airtight container in the fridge. Chilling prevents the candy from breaking down from humidity and keeps it firm. If you need to layer candy on top of another inside the container, make sure to add a piece of parchment paper in between, or the candy may stick.
