  • 3/4 cup cream
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 4 squares of unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Balancing it on a large wooden spoon that it may melt gradually with no danger of burning on the kettle. Continue the boiling. Stir occasionally, until a firm ball may be formed when mixture is tried in cold water. Add vanilla. Turn into a pan lined with butter, having the mixture 3/4 of an inch in depth. When nearly cold, cut in cubes. Use scissors or a sharp knife. Wrap in squares of wax paper. Let stand in a cold place to become hard to the touch.
