Been looking for this recipe forever - I remember this candy from my childhood. Thank you so much MEANCHEF for sharing it. Its some work, but sooo worth it! You can't believe that these three simple ingredients can make something this creamy and sweet. You really need to try this - you've never tasted anything quite like it.
