Cherry Mash Bars/Candy

Remember when you were a child, there was this ungodly sweet candy bar called Cherry Mash? Well, this recipe is so close to that sweet candy bar, it will take you back to 1918 - 1950. Cherry Mash is the third oldest candy bar in the USA and is made by the Chase Candy Company. You really NEED a powerful sweet tooth to eat this. But the flavor is good. With Halloween coming up, this might be just the thing to make for the tricksters!

Cherry Mash Bars
2 cups Miniature Marshmallows
2/3 cup Evaporated Milk
1/2 cup Butter
2 cups Sugar
10 oz. package Cherry Chips
12oz. package Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
3/4 cup Peanut Butter
12oz. Crushed Salted Peanuts
Add butter to a sauce pan and melt on low.  Once melted, add marshmallows, evaporated milk & sugar.  Bring to a boil for 5 minutes stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and stir in cherry chips until completely melted. Line a 9x13 pan with wax paper.  Pour cherry mixture into the pan and spread out evenly. Melt chocolate chips and peanut butter in a double boiler or in the microwave.  Mix in crushed peanuts.  Pour on top of cherry mixture.  Let the bars cool and then refrigerate overnight or 4-6 hours. Once chilled, lift the wax paper to remove from the pan.  Cut into 1 inch square pieces and enjoy!
Till next time......
