This is fabulous!!! My BF has been telling me about these candies that his Grandma made when he was a kid. Recipe lost, family has been without them for thirty years...til now!!! I am making a huge batch of these for his family for Xmas -- it will be the first time I'm meeting most of them, so you just helped me score major bonus points with them!!! Thanks so much - BF says they are PERFECT!!!!

This is a great recipe!!! It made approx. 100 pieces. I used a 2x2 inch square of wax for dipping. I also used almond extract, it gave them a cherry like flavor and I was out of the vanilla. So much positive feedback on these. Thanks for posting!!

These are just the best real old fashioned candies! I make them with almond extract, pecans and maraschino cherries, for Christmas every year. These are so easy to make and taste just amazing! Thanks so much for posting.

I've been making this same recipe for over 40 years. I split the basic fondant recipe into thirds. I make 1/3 with pecan pieces, 1/3 with maraschino cherries and the other 1/3 with orange zest. Thanks for posting.

My grandmother only makes this candy at Christmas. We look forward to them all year. I helped her this year and they are very easy to make!

I used to have this recipe and lost it. Am so happy to find it again. The only difference is that my old recipe added chopped maraschino cherries - yummy!!

Another variation to this is to use bakers chocolate (non sweetened). That how my grandmother mother taught me.

I, too, have been searching for this recipe since my mother-in-law passed away almost 20 years ago! They are as good as I remember and have once again become a Christmas candy tradition.
