My mom used to make this candy when I was a kid. She had not made it in many years. I was thinking about this candy not too long ago and I thought it would be neat to have it again. Just like magic, my mom suddenly made some before Thanksgiving and we enjoyed it when we were visiting them.
I made some around New Year's.
My mom said she also made some with watermelon flavored oil after Thanksgiving. I'd like to try some in cherry flavor.
This may seem kind of holiday-ish right now, but I think it could also work for Valentine's Day. No fat in this recipe, and that's good.
Oh, does this make your house smell good when you put that cinnamon oil in!
