Hump Day Humor: Heaven/Heavenly

Hump Day Humor - Hosted by Mercedes Rocks
Theme: Heaven/Heavenly

Heavenly Hash
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 tablespoon white corn syrup
1 package chocolate chips, (6 oz)
1 cup chopped nuts, walnuts or pecans
1 cup miniature marshmallows

Mix sugar, milk and 1 tablespoon corn syrup in a heavy 2 quart saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Continue boiling, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add chocolate chips, stirring until completely melted. Let mixture cool for 15 minutes. Add pecans and marshmallows. Using 2 teaspoons, drop candy onto a large baking sheet lined with wax paper. Chill until firm.

To test for soft ball stage: Use fresh cold water each time you test the candy. In about 1 cup of cold water, spoon about 1/2 teaspoon of hot candy. Put you hand into the water and push the candy to form a ball. Gently pick the formed ball up (if it will not form a ball, it is not done) - the soft ball will flatten slightly when removed from water.

  5. I love the pic of the dog. The recipe sounds like it could be a caramel of some sort. I lurve caramel! We don't have corn syrup in Australia or I would try it. I see lots of yummy recipes with corn syrup in them and I feel all sad because I can't make them :(
