Homemade Cherry Mash Candy

My friend Deb sent me this classic candy recipe--just in time for Christmas!

Cherry Mash

2 sticks margarine
4 Cups sugar
1 can evaporated milk
10 oz bag miniature marshmallows
2 12-oz bags cherry chips
2 12-oz bags chocolate chips
1½ cups crunchy peanut butter

Mix together milk, sugar, and margarine in a sauce pan; bring to a full rolling boil. Stir often as it will scorch easily. Boil for 7 minutes. Add the miniature marshmallows, stirring until melted. Add the two packages of cherry chips, stirring again until melted. Put in a greased 9 x 13 pan. Chill.

Topping: Melt 2 packages chocolate chips with 1 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter. Spread over top of chilled cherry mixture.

Merry Christmas everyone!
