Cherry Mash Bar Recipe

Cherry Mash Bars

  • 2 cups Minature Marshmallows
  • 2/3 cup Evaporated Milk
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 10 oz. package Cherry Chips
  • 12oz. package Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 3/4 cup Peanut Butter
  • 12oz. Crushed Salted Peanuts
Add butter to a sauce pan and melt on low. Once melted, add marshmallows, evaporated milk & sugar. Bring to a boil for 5 minutes stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in cherry chips until completely melted.

Line a 9x13 pan with wax paper. Pour cherry mixture into the pan and spread out evenly.

Melt chocolate chips and peanut butter in a double boiler or in the microwave. Mix in crushed peanuts. Pour on top of cherry mixture. Let the bars cool and then refrigerate overnight or 4-6 hours.

Once chilled, lift the wax paper to remove from the pan. Cut into bars & enjoy!

  1. I tried Cherry Mash for the first time while in KC for work earlier this year. Its such a pretty candy!

  2. Cherry Mash is a favorite around here! Yum!

  3. my daughters favorite. She has requested these again this year. Will be her first time home from living a semester in dorm life.

  4. Are you kidding? Cherry Mashes are my husband's favorite candy!!!! Once, while in the mountains on vacation, we accidentally left some food on the back porch and the window open in the kitchen(it was summer). A small black bear came through the window in the middle of the night. The dog barking scared it back out the window but not before he picked up my husbands Cherry Mash (and camera...for some reason). My husband complained about that Cherry Mash the entire trip....laughingly of course. I am not kidding....I am really making these. Maybe tomorrow

  5. My Mom is from St. Joesph, MO (Cherry Mash bars are made in St. Joe) and this is her recipe. She says they are as good as the original. I hope your husband likes them!
