Mom’s Recipe Box: Candy from Candy
Posted on August 1, 2014
(Candy from Candy) Marshmallow Fudge
I watched my mother make this recipe when I was quite young. Then little by little she let me help, until the first time I made it myself and I was so proud and happy.
My mother noted on the recipe card that it was originally tested by one of her best friends – Evelyn Wallen. Then Mom tested it herself.
The Marshmallow Fudge is sweet – just like the memories of cooking in the kitchen with Mom. – Candy Bennett
3 cups sugar; three fourths cup milk; 2 teaspoons cornstarch; 1 teaspoon vanilla; pinch of salt; 1 tablespoon butter; one half cup cocoa; one half can marshmallow creme (about 8 ounces).
Boil altogether: sugar, milk, cornstarch, butter and cocoa for about 15 minutes – stir regularly. Take off stove – add marshmallow creme, vanilla and salt ( and nuts if desired). Beat until thick. Pour into square pan. Let cool. Cut in squares.
Enjoy! – CAB.
