yukon, northwest territories and nunavuit are territories up north, much like the united states alaska.

then, going from left to right it is british columnbia (bc), alberta, saskatchewan, manitoba, ontario, quebec.

then there are four atlantic provinces. newfoundland, new brunswick, nova scotia, prince edward island (pei).

i am a manitoban, and i'm not sure what candy is specific to here. do other places have nanimo bars?

My recipe is called ''Sucre la crme'' which would translate as...Cream Sugar I guess? It is a delicious candy which is very popular around Christmastime in Qubec.



Sucre la crme

INGREDIENTS:
-1 cup Brown Sugar
-1 cup Sugar
-1 cup Heavy Cream
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1 tablespoon butter
-1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

PREPARATION:
-In a pan, mix the brown sugar, sugar and the cream.
-Bring to a boil over high heat and let simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
-Add vanilla and butter and whisk until well blended
-Add the nuts (optional)
-Pour the mixture into a greased pan and let cool.
-Cut into small squares and enjoy!

I hail from Pennsylvania, the chocolate capital of the U.S. (Hershey is based here) PA is also known for pretzels, so I give you the absolute easiest chocolate covered pretzel recipe ever:

2 (10 ounce) packages pretzels
1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Melt chocolate and cream in double boiler over low heat, stirring constantly.
Dip pretzels one at a time quickly to coat while mixture is still very warm. Place pretzels on wax paper to set and cool.

You're Welcome!

I have an idea for ILlinois.  What about tootsie rolls?  They are from chicago.  I don't have a recipe because I am jinxed when it comes to candy.  Just thought I'd pass on the idea.  Maybe someone has a good recipe?
