- 2 cups sugar
- ½ cup AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate Drink Mix
- Approximately 4 Tablespoons (the size of a large egg, with extra to grease the pan) Butter
- 1 cup milk
- 1 "Boil until it's sugary on the sides of the pan and puffs up and is thick," is all the undated manuscript offers. We offer the following elaboration: Combine sugar, milk and AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate Drink Mix in a medium saucepan, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer.
- 2 To check if it's done, drop a small ball into a bowl of cold water. It should form a soft ball. Or use a sugar thermometer and cook until 240 degrees F. Remove from the heat and beat well with a spoon. The mixture should be very thick and about to set. Pour into a greased 8x8-inch baking pan and let cool. Cut into squares and serve.
