    An easy recipe for hard candy. The hardest part is waiting for the sugar to reach the proper temperature. Be patient and use a candy thermometer for perfect candy. This recipe can easily be adjusted by using different flavored extracts and food colorings.


    This is an old recipe from my childhood. Many people have memories of cutting this candy with their mother s and grandmothers. I have passed it on and am now posting here for all to share in this classic Christmas tradition!
