1940s Chocolate Candy
Before the creation of the microwave, the way to make candy was with a candy thermometer and a heavy saucepan.
Now I make this 1940 candy in the microwave because…why not!
I love it because it has raisins in it and tastes somewhat like a Chunky bar, which I grew up loving. It is cooked and poured over some coconut and formed into a roll, then sliced. Be sure and refrigerate the roll for it to harden up before slicing.
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 16 large marshmallows
- 2 T. cream or milk
- 1 cup chopped nuts
- 1/2 cup coconut
- Microwave chocolate, marshmallows and cream on high for 3 minutes. Stir. Add raisins and nuts. Stir well.
- Place waxed paper on a flat surface and sprinkle with coconut. Pour candy onto coconut, forming a log about 2 inches thick. Place in refrigerator and slice when hardened into 1/8-inch slices.
