I used to LOVE Big Hunk candies. I might try this for some special occasion. I'll store it here until I crave it.


1 cup nuts (of your choice), finely chopped
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup water
2 1/3 cup marshmallow cream or fluff
1 1/2 tbsp shortening
6 tbsp powdered sugar

1. Prepare a square 8-inch pan by lining it with foil and spraying the foil with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Combine the sugar, honey, corn syrup, and water in a large saucepan over medium heat.

3. Remove from the heat and let cool for 10 minutes.

4. Add the marshmallow cream and shortening, and beat with a hand blender or stir vigorously with a spoon until well mixed.

5. Stir in the powdered sugar and the chopped nuts.

6. Pour into the prepared pan and allow to set at room temperature overnight.
