“How long has it been since you’ve cut creamy-smooth squares of chocolate fudge to pass on a plate to guests?” asks Nell B. Nichols, food editor of the Farm Journal and editor of Homemade Candy. The introduction to the book is titled “Everyone Likes Candy!” and this is always true… especially when making the recipes in this taste-tempting cookbook. With the approach of Christmas, when you deck your halls with holly and decide on the most prominent spot for your tinseled tree, candy also moves to stage center — indeed, it becomes a kitchen campaign! The candy treats you make before the holidays are a friendly greeting to relatives and neighbors who stop by to nibble while they talk. Homemade candy also is something special to share with people far away. Packages holding coffee cans, stuffed with love and candy, travel from home kitchens to servicemen and students around the earth. The cookbook is divided into two sections: a large section on candy, and a smaller one on confections, “first cousins of candy.”
