The world is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Goo Goo Cluster candy bar made by Standard Candy Company in Nashville Tennessee. Many a tourist to Music City has left with a box of Goo Goo's to take home, only to learn that they can't find this confection in every corner of the world. If you happen to be craving a gooooooooooooooood gooooooooooooooey candy bar, try this. We make them every Christmas and package them up for our holiday goodie baskets, or you can order the real deal from our friends online at www.googoo.com
Homemade Goo Goo Bars
1 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 (12-ounce) package chocolate chips
2 cups salted peanuts
10 ounces miniature marshmallows
Melt milk and chocolate chips together either in microwave or pan on stove. Mix peanuts and marshmallows in a bowl; pour chocolate mixture into bowl and mix. Drop by spoonful onto wax paper and allow to harden. Some people prefer to pour into a pan lined with wax paper and cut into pieces once it has cooled. Store in air tight container.
