Dandy Candy


When I came across this recipe in my recipe box I just had to post it because it brought back childhood memories! My sister loved to make this candy when she was little! The recipe came from a 1976 child's cookbook. It is a no-cook candy that is very simple and kids love it! Prep time includes 1 hour to chill. (I guessed on the servings)
