Cherry Mash Fudge

These home made treats taste just like the Cherry Mash candy bars I loved as a child. The cherry chips are a seasonal item where I live. I find them at Wal-mart and larger grocery stores in the month or two leading up to Christmas time. I stock up and put a few in my pantry or freezer for later use.


 1 cup sugar
 2 Tablespoons butter
 1/4 teaspoon salt
 1/3 cup half-and-half or 1/3 cup undiluted evaporated milk
 1 cup miniature marshmallows or 10 regular marshmallows
 1 cup cherry chips
 1 cup chocolate chips or 4 ounces semisweet chocolate
 1/2 cup peanut butter
 1 cup salted peanuts, chopped


In a saucepan combine sugar, butter, salt and half and half. Over medium high heat bring to a boil and cook stirring occasionally for 5 minutes or 6 minutes at altitudes over 5,000 feet. Turn the heat to low and stir in marshmallows and cherry chips until completely combined. Spread evenly into an 8 or 9 inch square pan which has been lined with parchment or wax paper. While the cherry layer is setting up melt the chocolate with peanut butter in a small pan over low heat, stirring occasionally. Stir in half of the peanuts. Spread evenly over cherry layer. Sprinkle the remaining peanuts on top. Put in refrigerator until set firm. Cut into 1 inch squares with warm sharp knife (hold under hot water and then dry before cutting).

These can be frozen in a zip-top bag for up to a month or so.

Serves: about 8

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.

We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
