All little children like this, and it is easily made. To two cups of
molasses, add one cup of sugar, two tablespoons of butter, and boil
until brittle when dropped in cold water. Add then one-fourth
teaspoonful of soda, stir through and pour on buttered tins. When cool
enough to handle pull to a light color, cut in sticks, and lay on oiled
paper to harden. This is good flavored with a few drops of peppermint,
but do not get in too much.
