      Thank you, this is an excellent recipe. I too have the same one from my grandmother born in 1878. The only difference I found in the instructions was to use a linen napkin?

      Ny Dad's favorite Christmas treat which my Mom made each and every year. Very, very rich....one piece will satisfy, at least for a while. Love this candy once a year. The recipe was passed on from my great great grandmother who was born in the 1860's.

      It was so strange reading this recipe because I knew exactly how it tasted. Then I could remember eating this when I was a little child. My Great Granny made it around Christmas for the adults. I am going to make it, though, my grandchildren won't care for the dates, our grown children will. Thanks for a great menory.
