Red Carnations/Homemade Heath Bars
Here's a water color of mine from the mid 90's that my sister so graciously scanned for me. I have chicken photos to show as well, but I do not know how to get more than one photo at a time on any given post.
More personel tid-bits: Here's what we've been enjoying for a treat around our house—home-made Heath candy bars. They are under the title "Toffee" in the 1969 Betty Crocker cookbook on page 165. Here's the recipe:
- 1 cup pecans, chopped
- 3/4 cup br sugar packed
- 1/2 cup butter (that's one stick)
- 1 bar (4 1/2 ounces) milk chocolate candy or 1@ cup semisweet chocolate chips
Butter square pan, 9x9x2 inches. spread pecans in pan. Heat sugar and butter to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil over medium heat, stirring constatnly, 7 minutes. Immediately spread mixture evenly over nuts in pan.
Sprinkle chocolate pieces over hot mixture; place baking sheet over pan so contained heat will melt the chocolate. Spread meleted chocoate over candy. While hot, cut into 1 1/2 inch squares. Chill untill firm. Makes 3 dozen candies.
My daughter surprised us with a plate of these! I have a sister (deceased) who absolutely loved Heath candy bars so I think of her when I see a batch of these on the counter.
personally yours, E.J.
