This was the only thing I remember Dad cooking around the holidays. And if HE could do it... Just remember my mom's tip: never, never, never try to make candy when it's raining. I don't know why, but it seems to be true!

INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):


  • Cook syrup, sugar, and water to soft ball stage (a small amount dropped into cold water forms a soft ball).
  • Pour half of this mixture over stiffly beaten egg whites. Stir.
  • Cook remaining sugar mixture to brittle stage (a small amount dropped into cold water turns immediately brittle).
  • Add to previous mixture and beat until candy will hold its shape. Beat again by hand to re-aerate it. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Allow to harden as it cools. Store in refrigerator with waxed paper between layers.
