Printable Recipe


4 cups sugar
2 pt. light karo syrup

Bring to a rolling boil and add:

1 lb. butter
1 pint whipping cream
1 large can evaporated milk

Have the butter cut into small chunks and ready. Add butter and cream a little at a time so mixture never is quite boiling. Cook to firm ball, test in cold water. Remove from heat and add 1 T. vanilla. Pour immediately into pans that have been greased and lined with nuts. Cut into squares and wrap pieces in waxed paper.

Holly’s Note:
This is one of my mom’s candy recipes. Christmas wouldn’t be the same without her treats. Just looking at the recipes brings back memories. These are melt in your mouth delicious.

  1. I halved this recipe and it worked great! I just needed to be patient and calmly wait for the soft ball stage. Boy when it gets there, it happens FAST! Beware!
