So one thing I love about this time of year is all the yummy treats! It starts to get cold, and all I want to do is stay inside and make delicious foods! When I worked at Cox Honeyland, one of my favorite candies was their Old-Fashioned Honey Candy – the kind you can pull! It is delicious, and it’s fun to make! 🙂

Homemade Honey Candy Recipe
- 2 cups melted honey
- 1 cup cream
- 1 cup sugar
- butter (or butter-flavored cooking spray)
- Combine the first 3 ingredients and cook slowly on medium heat until it forms a hard ball when you drop it into ice water. It took me about an hour.
- As the mixture gets close to being done, the bubbles from the boil will get a lot smaller and closer together. Pour the mixture onto a buttered cooking sheet. When cooled, pull with buttered hands. Stretch, twist and pull until firm (this is the fun part! ;)) and then form into long ropes and place on waxed paper.
- Cut into bite size pieces. If you want, you can roll them in powdered sugar and wrap them in wax paper.
