Hard Christmas Candy Recipe
1 C. light corn syrup

Combine corn syrup and water in a medium-size heavy saucepan. Cover and bring to
a boil. Remove cover and cook over medium heat, without stirring, to 300°F.
(150°C) on a candy thermometer. (A teaspoonful of syrup will separate into
brittle threads when dropped into cold water.)

in strips over powdered sugar. Cool completely at room temperature. Invert pan,
peel off foil and break into pieces.
Makes about 2 pounds candy.
Candy Bar Cookies on a Stick
1 C. peanut butter
1/2 C. butter
1/2 C. shortening
1 1/2 C. granulated sugar
1/2 C. packed brown sugar
1 1/2 t. baking soda
1 t. vanilla
2 1/4 C. flour
40 wooden sticks
40 miniature-size (about 1" square) chocolate-coated, caramel-topped nougat
candy bars (with or without peanuts) or 20 fun-size candy bars (about 2x1"
rectangles), halved crosswise
Optional small multicolor decorative candies, chopped nuts, and/or colored sugar
Optional melted chocolate or frosting
Beat peanut butter, margarine or butter, and shortening in a large mixing bowl
with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated
sugar, brown sugar, and baking soda; beat till combined. Beat in eggs and
vanilla till combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer on
medium speed, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. stir in any remaining flour
with a wooden spoon.
Insert a wooden stick into each candy bar piece.
Form about 2 tablespoons dough into a ball shape around each candy bar piece,
making sure the candy is completely covered. If desired, roll ball in decorative
candies, nuts, or colored sugar, gently pushing candies or nuts into dough.
Place cookies 2 1/2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a 325° F.
oven for 15 to 20 minutes or till golden and set. Cool on cookie sheet for 5
minutes. Remove from cookie sheet and cool completely on rack.
If desired, drizzle or frost the cookies with melted chocolate or frosting.
Makes about 40.
1 lb. plums
1/2 pound of sugar
pint of water
2 pounds of sugar
2 tablespoons of water
Make a thin syrup of half a pound of sugar and a pint of water. Slit a pound of
plums down the seam and put them into the syrup. Poach gently until only just
tender, taking care that they remain covered with the syrup, or they will lose
their color. Cool, cover and refrigerate overnight.
The following day make a thick syrup of
two pounds of sugar and two tablespoons of water. Boil until a little dropped in
a bowl of cold water makes a thick but soft ball. Remove from heat and allow to
become cold. Then carefully drain the plums as completely as possible from the
first syrup and place them gently in the second thick syrup.
Reheat and scald only until the plums look clear, taking care that they are
completely covered in the syrup. Allow to cool again. Then empty them into a
shallow ceramic or glass bowl, cover tightly and allow them to develop flavor in
the refrigerator for a week. Take them out and spread them apart on dishes or
plates. Cover loosely with baking paper, put them in a warm, dry place and turn
them every day until dry. If you put them in a very low warming oven, turning
them every half hour, at first, then every hour, etc., they can be dried much
more quickly. At this stage a home fruit dryer can also be used if desired.
Do not discard the thin syrup. It makes a delicious sauce on ice cream, either
by itself or accompanied by finely chopped sugarplums. You can freeze it until
your sugarplums are ready. Alternatively it can be used as the liquid in a cake
recipe. You would have to reduce the sugar in the cake recipe accordingly.
Berry Mocha Fudge
1/4 lb. butter
12 oz. can of evaporated milk
3 1/2 C. of sugar
1 heaping T. of instant coffee
10 oz. Hershey's Raspberry chocolate chips
2 oz. bittersweet chocolate
7 oz. marshmallow cream
1 tsp. vanilla
In a heavy saucepan melt the butter. Add evaporated milk, sugar, and coffee.
Bring to a rolling boil, stirring constantly until the temperature reaches 235
degrees. Remove from heat and and raspberry chocolate chips and the bittersweet
chocolate. Stir the mixture until all ingredients are melted. Add the
marshmallow crème and stir until blended. Stir in the vanilla. Pour into a
lightly greased 9 X 13 inch pan. Cut in bite sized squared when cooled.
