This was fun and so easy to make.
Grandma lived on a farm, and had to make her own candy...to give to us grandchildren,when we visited.
She would also make her own
"sugar nipples" for when the babies cried.
A homemade pacifier!
She wet the corner of a hankie, dipped it in sugar,twisted it , tied a not and let the crying baby suck on it!!! It always worked!!
Talk about a sugar high!!!!
