Mother was a great candy maker.  I never remember baking on Sunday, but we often made fudge or divinity on Sunday afternoon.


  • 2 c. sugar
  • ¾ c. milk
  • 1 ½ sq. baking chocolate
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 t. corn syrup
  • 2 T. margarine or butter
  • 1 t. vanilla

Butter sides of heavy aluminum (4 qt.) sauce pan.  In it combine sugar, milk, chocolate, salt and corn syrup.  Cover with lid and bring to a boil.  Remove lid and turn heat down so that the mixture is kept gently boiling.  Cook to soft ball stage, stirring only if necessary.  Immediately remove from heat.  Add butter and cool to lukewarm without stirring.  When cool, beat until ready to pour into 9″x9″ pan (buttered) to set and cut into squares or drop by teaspoonful for immediate serving.  (note signs of proper time to stop beating)
