Here is the last of my remaining holiday treat ideas that didn't quite make it to the blog before Christmas. This is another old family favorite no-bake recipe. Again, my dear old Mudder is the guest chef because I stole these out of her freezer to take the pic! Thanks Mom!
In a medium saucepan over medium low heat combine:
¾ cup butter
¾ cup sugar
1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
Very quickly whisk in
3 beaten eggs
and cook for about a minute whisking constantly. Remove from heat and add quickly fold in:
3 cups graham wafer crumbs
1 cup coconut
2 ½ cups mini marshmallow
In a 9x13 inch baking pan, line the bottom of the pan with graham wafer crackers. Spread the prepared mixture evenly over the crackers and chill well for a couple of hours or overnight. Top with whipped cream, cut in squares and serve. These freeze very well but you might like to use a non-dairy whipped topping if you want to freeze them with the cream already on them. If not, freeze them without the whipped cream and just add it before serving.
