Handwritten Recipe Wednesday: Peppermint Dessert

I had so much fun at the Green Hills PL last night for Vintage Cookies and Candy! Beautiful library, great librarian host Diana, really fun crowd. One even brought me her favorite candy - a Maple Bun Bar! Mmmmm...

I was trying to find a handwritten recipe for St. Pat's Day and this is about as close as I can get. Apparently in my collection of 18 boxes few folks if any were Irish, or cooked for the high holiday tomorrow. But this could easily be dyed green and have mint chips.

Peppermint Dessert
1 lb. Vanilla Wafers (wow)
1 1/2 Pts. cream (Whipped)
1 1/2 Cup Diced Marschmellows (misspelled on card)
1 cup chopped nuts
5 penny sticks of peppermint candy
Put wafers through grinder (I hope that's not the meat grinder. Use the food processor!). Pack 1/2 of wafers in pan 8 x 12.  Mix together the cream, marshmellows, nuts and crushed peppermint and put it on top of the wafers.  Sprinkle rest of wafers on top of this mix.  Leave in ice box at least 24 hours.

Where on earth would you find penny candy now? Try dollar candy...
