You'll love Grandma's homemade candy recipes! Especially if you love treating yourself to candy and chocolates. Few people have ever tasted authentic, old fashioned candies like these. They are similar to the old time candy counter candies once sold.

The candies you buy today simply cannot compare. Homemade candies have a totally unique texture, and a sensational melt-in-your-mouth taste experience that the store-bought variety cannot match in a million years. Try a plateful of Grandma's vintage fudge and taste the difference.


Candy Making Is Fun

Making your own candy is inexpensive and fun. And it's not complicated with the help of Grandma's recipes. You'll enjoy making your very own treats such as chocolate fudge, toffee, praline, peanut brittle, chewy caramels, old fashioned stick candy, chocolates and lots more!

Back in the 1950s, when I was a young boy, most families made their own snack foods. After the evening's farm chores were done, we  would pick a favorite fudge recipe and Mom would make a large plateful of candy.

We all sat nibbling on it as we listened to the antics of "Fibber McGee and Molly," our favorite old time radio program. That old tube radio would start to buzz sometimes, and it was always my job to run over and give it a tap to stop to clear the sound. We didn't want to miss the unforgettable clatter of McGee opening his hall closet.

The homemade fudge was delicious, and it greatly added to the fun of our evenings. The wonderful memories that will last me a lifetime.

Why not get your family involved in making homemade candy? With Grandma's collection of homemade candy recipes and a  little practice, you will easily master the art of candy making. Make a big plateful tonight!

All-Natural Ingredients

Grandma's homemade candy recipes call for simple, fresh ingredients. Why use artificial flavors when all-natural ingredients like honey, nuts, cream, and chocolate make the best flavors? And by using the common, everyday ingredients found in your kitchen, the cost is often less than store-bought candies. And the taste is better too!

Egg Safety Tip

No Bake recipes might call for raw, uncooked eggs or egg whites. To avoid any health risk, please visit my Eggs and Salmonella page for simple instructions on how to safely adapt the old fashioned recipe.
