Yesterday I made molasses candy.

When I was a small child, I had a friend who would take me with her to visit her grandma.

This homemade molasses candy was always the sweet treat that my friends grandma would give us.

Years later, I secured the recipe from my friend. Each time I make and have even a small taste of this candy, my mind is flooded with wonderful childhood memories.
