My mother-in-law is famous for these little confections. She was good enough to share the recipe with me and after losing it once I don’t want to chance it again so I am posting it here for safe keeping.
1 1/2 cups light corn syrup
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 cups sugar
1 cup evaporated milk
Combine all and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture boils (approximately 45 minutes). Turn down heat. Continue cooking until candy reaches soft ball stage (235° F–240° F if using a candy thermometer), pour into a well greased 9x13 pan. Cool, cut and wrap in waxed paper. Scrumptious!
