2 1/3 c. sugar 2/3 c. light corn syrup 1/2 c. water 1/4 tsp. salt 2 egg whites 1 pkg. marshmallows 1/2 tsp. vanilla 1/4 c. candied cherries, cut fine 1/2 c. nutmeats, broken
Place sugar, corn syrup, water and salt in saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly, until sugar is completely dissolved. Continue cooking, without stirring, until temperature reaches 265° F (hard, almost brittle state). Remove from heat and gradually pour over stiffly beaten egg whites, beating constantly. Add marshmallows and beat until melted. Add vanilla, candied cherries and nutmeats. Continue beating until candy holds its shape when dropped from a spoon. Drop by teaspoonfuls on waxed paper, or turn candy into a slightly greased pan and cut into squares.
