    Default Candy history

    Who was it who first said that "one man's candy corn is another man's
    fudge?"

    Also, what did people use to make cordials before Columbus discovered
    chocolate.

    IME more cordials are made WITHOUT chocolate than with.
    Think of all the fruit and herbal-flavored liqueurs like
    Gran Marnier, Triple Sec, Kahlua, limoncello, Drambuie,
    all the fruit schnapps, Framboise, Poire Helene, etc.

    Are you talking about coridals/liqueurs or cordial filled chocolates?

    That's true. And the original filled confections were a sugar
    shell... there are still plenty of hard candies filled with booze.

    I think somewhere, that I have a recipe for making 'em.....
    where you enclose the cherry in a doughy type cream, that turns to liquid after being
    encased and sets a long while....

    Maybe, instead of chocolate-dipped pretzels, I'll dip some pretzels in some
    peanut brittle candy (after it's been boiled).
