You can call the candy anything you like, but my grandmother and great grandmother called it Martha Washington. I bet there is a great story behind that name. The candy is easy to make ands always a welcomed treat.

I made this year's ago and it was a big hit.....not hard to make .....and I love the name.......

This candy is probably tasty, but I doubt that Martha Washington had access to refined sugar, especially confectioner's sugar, and nobody had canned condensed milk. Vanilla would have been a real luxury, if it was available at all, so why is this called Martha Washington Candy?
