- Course: Cakes & Candy
One year, I really wanted a Heavenly Hash candy, but could not find any. I was living out-of-state and called my friends to see if they could find some for me. I ended up with 8 boxes, 24 pieces each of this delectable candy. Now if Elmer’s runs out, I can make my own.
Recipe by Dale Begnaud in memory of his Mom’s wonderful candy making talents.
- 1 package small marshmallows
- 3 cups sugar
- 3 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp Karo syrup
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup pet milk
- 1/2 stick butter (4 Tbsp)
- 1 jar marshmallow creme
- 1 cup toasted almonds (optional)
Place the package of marshmallows (and optional toasted almonds) into a buttered 13x9 dish.
In a medium-sized pot, combine and cook the sugar, cocoa powder, Karo, and the two milks. Cook until it forms a soft ball.
Remove from heat and add the butter and marshmallow creme. Blend thoroughly.
Pour mixture over the top of the marshmallows. Cool and allow to set, then cut into squares.
