Notes

My folks used to get "Angel Candy" around Christmas in an old grocery store called "ED'S MARKET". That's gotta be at least 40 years or more ago!! I loved that store!! Especially during the holidays! Half his produce section was given over to bulk candies and nuts!! Anyway, I have this recipe called "Honeycomb", and it's the closest thing I've found to the candy I remember as a child! You make it in your microwave and it is really, really good! Hope you try it and like it! Here it is:
