    That sounds like the date candy my friend used to make. I have tried making it a few times but always have trouble getting it right. It's either too sugary/grainy or it never sets and you need a spoon to eat it. Maybe I will try your recipe. Thanks.

    Make sure you use pure cane sugar. I use a heavy whipping cream to insted of just cream or canned milk. The recipe came from my grandmother and handed down . I am 79 so you see it is old.
