Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This was my Moms 1st cousins recipe who came every year to our candy making sessions. This was always her contribution to the candy making. We all brought different candy recipes to make and then we would share each others goodies. I promise you will like this recipe if you give it a try. Just don't tell anyone there's dates in it and they will love them.
