  1. How did you know I was looking for a recipe to make this candy????
    Seriously, I had this candy at a church luncheon a long time ago, since then I would think about the candy, and was glad that I did not get the recipe [you see, I would make it and we would eat it...]
    Now I will have to try it after I get the ingredients.

    Question: Is the corn syrup ABSOLUTELY necessary?

    Thank you! ^__^

  2. you know I do not know the answer to that but I know you can make a substitute for corn syrup here is a link for you


  3. Looks delicious! I make fudge for Christmas gifts but I might try some of this this year. Thanks to you and Mrs. Knight for sharing.
