Homemade Honey Candy Recipe
hen 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!
- 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.
