    >How did you know I was looking for a recipe to make this candy????Seriously, I had this candy at a church luncheon a long time ago, since then I would think about the candy, and was glad that I did not get the recipe [you see, I would make it and we would eat it…]Now I will have to try it after I get the ingredients.Question: Is the corn syrup ABSOLUTELY necessary?Thank you! ^__^
