Sea Foam is my favorite, but I have not been able to learn how to make it, perhaps because the humidity in Virginia is higher than it is in Wisconsin. Mom always said it had to be cold outside for it to turn out. Do you know how to make it? Make me some!
Fudge and Heavenly Hash, on the other hand, are not very difficult to make.
This year I made a batch of Mom’s Heavenly Hash. It is good and looks pretty on a plate, but I’m not a big fan of marshmallows. So I made some with marshmallows, and some with coconut instead. I also prefer Nestle’s Dark Chocolate Morsels to milk chocolate so I changed the second batch to use chocolate chips and the third batch uses baker’s chocolate. Check out the Walnut Joy Candy that was the result. It is yummy!
Note: I always melt the chocolate in the microwave, but you have to be very careful as it doesn’t look like it’s melted and it is easy to go from melted to burned. For this recipe, I microwave it for about 2 minutes and then check it. If it is not melted, I microwave it 30 seconds at a time until it is almost melted. Then I take it out and stir it to finish the melting process because a microwave does not heat the ingredients the same throughout the dish, but some of it is very hot and when stirred, it melts the rest.
