Recipe: Crockpot Candy

I come from a long line of bakers. Everyone used to go to my Grandpa for a specific cake to be made; wedding or birthday. My Great Grandpa was one of the co-owners of a local bakery many years ago; my grandpa worked for him. His three girls can bake, my grandma bakes, I bake, and my youngest sister bakes and decorates cakes.

Often I’m asked for a recipe for something that I’ve baked or cooked. A lot of times it’s at family reunions or other functions that I attend. Since it’s the holidays and a lot of people do a lot of baking, I will try to post some of my favorite recipes on my blog.

Crockpot Candy

My Grandmother makes this popular candy every year and I’m always asked for the recipe or if I could get her to make them some more. I thought I would share the recipe with you.

~*~ Just a precaution, this candy is very addicting and will leave you wanting more!
