“My grandmother made this very rich candy every year at Christmas for my father. I've never been able to make it exactly like hers because she didn't use a "recipe". Her recipes called for a little of this and a pinch of that. I'm sorry I don't have prep times and serving amount is a guess as these vary. It depends on how large you roll this out.”
