1 C. granulated sugar, caramelized
1/4 C. boiling water
2 C. granulated sugar
1 C. Pet Milk
Pinch of salt
2 t. grated orange rind
1 C. nuts
Caramelize the 1 cup of sugar by sifting slowly into a hot frying pan. Shake pan vigorously to prevent burning. Add boiling water to caramelized sugar and boil until sugar is dissolved. Add 2 C. sugar, milk and salt and boil to soft ball stage (236 degrees) stirring constantly. Just before the candy is done add orange rind. Remove from fire, cool, beat and add nuts. Drop from a teaspoon onto oiled paper.
Note: This candy makes a delicious icing for plain, spice or white cake. If too thick to spread easily, thin with a little undiluted Pet Milk.
