Chocolate Fudge. 1 square chocolate 2 tablespoons water 'ii cup honey 2 cups corn sirup U teaspoon soil '•); cup milk 4 tablespoons butter 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 cup nut meats Melt the chocolate in the hot water and add the honey, corn sirup, salt milk, and butter. Cook to the Softball stage, stirring occasionally (235. degrees F). Remove from the fire, and set the saucepan in a larger pan filled with cold water. Add the vanilla and beat until light colored and thick. Add the nuts and pour into a buttered pan. Cut into squares as soon as it begins to harden. Makes about dozen nice thick pieces. Or you could try this new recipe for fruit candies, guaranteed to delight boys and girls. (They 'll want to help you make this kind.) Fruit Candies. 2 cups ground raw prunes 'i cup peanut butter 1 cup ground dried figs, dates or apricots. H cup ground seedless raisins 1 teaspoon orange rind Vi teaspoon salt Let cleaned dried prunes and apricots stand in boiling water 5 minutes. Drain and remove prune pits. Mix the fruit and peanut butter by running through a food chopper a little at a time. Sprinkle the salt and the orange rind over the fruit and knead until it forms a smooth ball. It may be necessary to add a little honey or orange juice to hold the paste together. Let mixture stand until chilled. Some of the varieties of candies to be made from this basic recipe are: Fruit Balls—Break off small pieces and form into balls by molding in palms of hands. Roll in powdered sugar, granulated sugar or "decor- cttes." , Tiny Tim Apples—Shape portions of the fruit mixture into "apples" about 1 inch in diameter. Roll balls in pink- tinted granulated sugar. Insert whole cloves at top and bottom to represent the stem and the blossom. A tiny piece of citron cut in the shape of a leaf may be inserted at the base of the stem. Colored sugar is made by dissolving a coloring tablet in a tablespoon of hot water. Sprinkle this over one-half cup of granulated sugar and stir to color uniformly. Spread out to dry Then roll chilled fruit balls in it. Chocolate-Coated Sweets—Dip balls in melted semi-sweet chocolate or roll them in "chocolate shot." Of course you'll be making popcorn balls for good eating and Christmas tree decorations. And molasses apples-on-a-stick are another must 1 Molasses and ripe red apples make an unbeatable, combination for "yummy" eating. How about taffy? Tatty pulling is not only good exercise, but the candy's an all-time Christmas favorite. And honeyed fruit strips made from orange, grapefruit, or lemon peel are another form of sweets to try soon.
