This cookbook contains more than 70 recipes that are far more than simply old family favorites. For nearly 3/4 of a century, these formulas and trade secrets were closely guarded but are now being made available to the public for the first time. This book was written by Virginia Sager Holen with the help of her husband, Merv. For years they had owned and operated the Hazel's Candy Shops that were in the major malls in Washington and Oregon. Even though the book is written by professionals it is for the amateur using original recipes that were reduced in size for home cooking. All the recipes have been tested, with step-by-step procedures recorded, using the same concept as 'painting by numbers'.
