These were our favourite after-school treat in the 1960's - lovingly made by our grandma. Just three simple ingredients and hardly any preparation. Not only do these luscious treats look like beehives - you'd swear they had honey in them. After keeping for a while they might weep a little sticky liquid through the bottom - but don't worry, this makes them taste even yummier.
Can't remember where I found this recipe, but it's great for Mexican night, or Cinco De Mayo!! (New Note: If you use the new Special K cereal with cinnamon and pecans, this is REAL delicious! Add the sugar and not as much cinnamon, no butter, and you don't have to bake it! Very crunchy and SO DELICIOUS!!! I used about 1 1/4 C Special K.)
Build an Oreo turkey with Oreos, candy and frosting. This would be a fun activity for (school-age) kids at a Thanksgiving gathering to put these together. They can display them at their dinner place and eat them for dessert....if they can wait that long. The recipe I am listing will be to make one dozen turkeys.
More candy than cake really!
When I was young, and way before that, this was seen pretty frequently around Bermuda in small shops. Nowadays, you may see it at a charity bake sale or the occasional corner shop run by Bermudians that still keep in touch with the good ol' days!
This is an old Bermudian favorite with school kids. A charity bake sale is not complete in Bermuda without glass candy! I'd walk away from the sale empty handed and disappointed if there wasn't any!
You'd see me happily walking along the sidewalk with a piece of yummy glass candy wrapped in either a sandwich bag or waxed paper sticking out of my mouth, if they sold it! :-)
You'll want to make a double batch of these truffles. SOOOoooo easy and soooo good.I store them in the freezer and find they are still good after a couple of monthe but the original recipe said store in fridge and for up to a week. I reccommend that you use "Slide" no stick foil
