An easy and yummy sounding little treat! Old Fashioned Swedish candy, but I'm not sure of the yield as it only states 4 servings. What is serving size? Depends on how good it is! Posted for ZWT9 Scandinavia.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup molasses
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1⁄3 cup blanched almond, coarsely chopped
- Mix sugar, molasses, butter and cream in a heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat until mixture comes to soft ball stage (mixture forms soft balls when dropped into cold water).
- Add almonds, stirring to combine. Pour immediately into small foil candy cups. (The recipe booklet shows her using two spoons to put the mixture in the cups) . This is probably messy!
- Allow to set.
