Personal Notes:
This recipe was given to my mother by her niece, Jodie Hillard. Jodie obtained it from her mother-in-law, Laurine Hillard. Mother made it every Christmas for years even after her arthritic hands could hardly cut the squares. My brother, Eddie and I, always volunteered to help her stir the candy and cut the waxpaper wrappers. We had selfish motives, course. We wanted the delicious candy!

P.S. It is best to double this recipe and use a 9x13-inch buttered dish.
