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.
Look for Mom’s Recipe Box weekly on Fridays as family members add to and celebrate my mother’s collection of recipes – the Cecelia G. Bennett Collection.- JB
NO holiday would be complete in the Bennett House unless Candy made her fudge. I recall many a holiday where I would sit and watch, with baited breath, for the fudge, to reach the “soft ball” stage! Candy would drop the boiling, chocolate yummy ness, into cold water. If it formed a ball, that meant it was ready to remove from the stove and add the marshmallow. But that drop of ouey gooey morsel, was my moment of heaven. I had double the pleasure when the fudge was completed. As mentioned on previous recipe post, I have been so blessed and so fortunate to have a family that loved and cared about me. I am even more fortunate and blessed to have Candy in my life! Such an incredible, selfless woman that loves, cares and is so giving of herself. Candy by name and sweet by design!
You said that perfectly. We are all blessed to have Candy in our lives!
