2 cups sugar
1 cup light cream
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup marshmallows, miniature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup pecan halves
1/3 cup candied cherries, chopped
1/3 cup green candied cherries, chopped
Combine sugar, cream, butter, syrup and salt in a heavy saucepan.
Bring to a gentle boil over low heat. Cook, stirring constantly,
until sugar melts. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until
mixture reaches 240 degrees on candy thermometer. This is the soft
ball stage. Remove from heat; stir in marshmallows and vanilla.
Stir until marshmallows melt and candy starts to lose its gloss. Stir
in pecan halves and chopped cherries. Continue stirring until candy
starts to set.
Pour into buttered 8-inch square pan. Cool, then cut into squares.
