Honey Candy

Look how pretty this is—Honey Candy–for your…Honey.

It tastes so good and I’ve even been told that it makes a lovely, soothing throat drop. I’m a bit more interested in it as a candy, because, well–it’s just the kinda girl I am.

But to each his own.

HONEY CANDY

2 c. sugar
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. honey
1/4 c. butter

Put all the ingredients in heavy pan and cook over medium heat until it reaches the *hard crack stage. Pour into a buttered cookie sheet. Fold edges of candy into middle until cool enough to pull. Pull and cut it into one inch pieces or roll in balls. Put on a greased cookie sheet. You can leave it there–or you can twist each piece in wax paper or cellophane.

I’d suggest that you wrap it if you want to carry a few pieces in your purse…

but you decide.

:]

  1. yeah! I have been waiting for this recipe! will have to make some for my sick big kid! I made a pot of the chicken soup you posted the recipe for last week- must say- YUM. when dj tried some he told me it may not last long enough for the sick one to eat!

  2. Ohhh… I think the picture of them all wrapped up turned out cute! I wish I would’ve been here for the pulling part of it all… I haven’t done that since I was younger!

  3. I love honey candy! i haven’t had it in a million years. i guess i will have to try making it myself!! thanks!

  4. You know, of course…that we made these just because you asked for them. I haven’t made this recipe since high school. And the soup—oh my. It is soooo good. Someday I’m going to make some on all four burners of the stove…maybe that would be enough.
    hee hee

  5. It’s more like a hard candy that softens up in your mouth. Keep it away from your back teeth if you like your fillings intact though!

    :]

  6. I also wonder if you could use hard candy molds? What about adding other flavors to the mix? Would that mess up the recipe to add a berry flavor for example?
