The Holiday Candy Book from 1952

  I've got a great candy-making book to share with you!  Before the days and weekends start getting really busy with holiday activities, let's look through our cookbooks for those candy recipes that we want to make.
  This book from my collection was written in 1952 by Virginia Pasley.  It's full of recipes for brittles, fudge, spiced nuts, taffy...all the goodies that make holidays yummy!

  The inside cover is definitely a throwback to the fifties with pastel-colored candies as a decorative touch.  I think you would find this book useful if you like homemade sweets.  It was published by Little, Brown and Company of Boston.

  (Note the illustration of the old candy thermometer matches the one in my kitchen drawer!)
