Audrey Caskey's No Bake Pie

20 large marshmallows
4 chocolate Hershey bars
2/3 cup milk
1 cup whipping cream, whipped
Prepared graham cracker crust

Place marshmallows, Hershey Bars, and milk in a double boiler and heat until melted. Stir until well blended and allow to cool. Fold in whipped cream. Spoon into graham cracker crust and chill. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.

I think at the time this recipe was written, Hershey bars were 1 oz. in size, so 4 oz. of chocolate would be sufficient, but extra chocolate won't hurt.

Audrey Caskey contributed this recipe to the Jolly Neighbors Extension Club of Rose, Nebraska, for a hand-written cookbook that they made during the early 1960's. I have expanded the directions a little because all the recipes were greatly condensed to fit on one side of a 3x5" recipe card. Mrs. Caskey was my teacher at Duff Valley District 4 when I was in third and fourth grades.

Another great Easy Recipe

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
