|Old fashion vintage candy recipes from the past..
We found these candy in vintage recipe boxes!
Most of these recipe boxes are from the 30's, 40's, 50's, and 60's.
If we have the name of the lady the recipe belonged to, we have given her the credit for
the recipe on our site. I hope someone may find one of their mother's lost recipes here.
Seemed as if every kitchen and every lady of the house had a recipe card file in their
kitchen. Our recipes come from these ladies of the past.
