Favorite Childhood Desserts Or Candy🥰

I was thinking of this as I was deciding on what to make for dessert for Memorial Day. My dear mother was an avid baker, but  made the BEST peach cobbler and sweet potato pies ( my favorites) that ever pleased the tastebuds! She baked for EVERY occasion, and function you can think of for family, friends, school and church members❤. Her desserts ALWAYS disappeared first at any event, but especially family reunions.🥰

 

My favorite candies were Lemon Heads and Big Hunk nougat type candy bars. I also liked Sugar Babies.😁

 

What are some of your favorite heart hugging dessert/candy memories from your childhood?.💝

Candy:  Mallo Cup - used to save the cards enclosed and then sent off for a package of 10 or 20.

@SandySparklesJust reread your post and saw Big Hunk.  We could not get this candy in my neck of the woods and a friend from Texas used to mail me several of them at one time.  Boy, are they good!

I loved the store bought snowball cupcakes that were pink and  had 2 in a pack.  We called them lunch cakes, they would be in vending machines back in the day...lol...my dad would bring them home from his work vending machine as I was as happy as if you had given me gold...lol... I don't even know if they still make them....but now I'm craving one!

I also love peach cobbler along with chocolate or yellow cake with chocolate frosting. 

My grandma used to buy full size Hershey chocolate bars and keep them in the fridge.  What a treat it was when she offered one up.
