One thing I always loved about the holidays approaching was that Mom would make candy. She made several kinds that I looked forward to every year. Unfortunately, one day while grocery shopping she left her recipe book in the cart at the commissary. So, the originals are lost forever! Through the power of the internet, though, I've located recipes to my three favorites. I haven't tested them, but they certainly look to be "just like Mom used to make"!
Peanut Butter Balls
Divinity - this is from Paula Deen, and she makes it sound so easy!
Coconut Balls - this is a close approximation, though we always used pecans.
The Peanut Butter Balls and the Coconut Balls freeze beautifully!
