This is one of my mom’s old recipes that she used many years.
We could always look forward to Mom’s homemade candy. One of the things I remember most was helping her crack all the walnuts and pecans for all the great candies that would be made. My brother and I would argue over who got the pan.Mom always made sure we shared. Good days Good memories. So on to the recipe
