This is an easy to make and delicious candy that is a little different than any other.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 3 cups white sugar
- 1 cup evaporated milk
- 1 cup dates, pitted and chopped
- 1 cup chopped nuts
Butter a 12x15 inch sheet of aluminum foil and dust generously with confectioners' sugar.
In a saucepan over medium-high heat, mix together the sugar and evaporated milk. Stir frequently and bring to softball stage of 235 degrees F. Stir in dates and nuts; allow mixture to cool.
Form the candy into a roll about 1-1/2 inches in diameter and wrap in the prepared foil; refrigerate until firm. Slice thinly with a knife dipped in hot water to serve.
