Boston Creams

Jolayne Cooper


My mom made candy for Christmas, all my life. This is one I remember. It is so delicious and so smooth and creamy. It is very good dipped in chocolate, but my pictures show the candy, not dipped.

How to Make Boston Creams


  • 1Combine sugar, cream and corn syrup in a large pan. Cook to soft ball stage on a candy thermometer.
  • 2Put 4 tablespoons butter on 2 large platters. Pour the candy onto the platters and let cool. While the candy is cooling, prepare a 9x13 pan by buttering the pan. Or you can line with foil and butter the foil. This makes for easier cutting of the candy once done.
  • 3Add vanilla and beat until creamy and it has lost it's glossy appearance, pour into the prepared pan and let set up.
  • 4Added nuts are optional.
  • 5NOTE: If you don't have a thermometer, you can drop a small amount of candy into a bowl of ice water. If it makes a soft ball that flattens when removed from the ice water, it is done.
  • 6There are more detailed instructions for candy in my "Mom's Fudge" recipe.
