First, I used double the chocolate chips and peanut butter. This is how I did it: I melted chocolate chips and peanut butter and spread this into a sprayed pan. Let set. Then I cooked butter, sugar, and milk until soft ball forms. Removed from heat. Add marshmallows, salt, vanilla, and cherry chips. Stirring until all marshmallows and chips are dissolved. Spread this on top of set peanut butter mixture. Then I melted more chocolate chips and peanut butter in microwave. Then I spread this on top of cherry chip mixture. This is like a Cherry Mash Candy Bar. It was delicious...

I'm making this right now, the cherry layer is cooling. I have a feeling it's also not going to set up. As I was simmering the stuff I had a feeling it should be cooked to a certain "ball stage", wish I would have gone with my instincts. I'll be really upset if it doesn't totally set up.

My favorite candy! If you're not from the midwest you may not be familiar with this one. It's very sweet and a nice addition to a candy plate at Christmas.
