Winter Whites

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!

2013 update. The new photo above shows a batch of Winter Whites made by my teenage daughter Olivia, who now keeps us well supplied with this family favourite during the holidays. She loves to eat these straight from the freezer!

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.
