3 cups pecans, chopped
8 large marshmallows
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 package (12 ounce size) vanilla wafers, crushed
1 cup coconut
10 candied cherries, chopped
1/8 pound candied pineapple or chopped raisins, if desired
1/2 cup sweet wine, if desired


Combined crushed wafers, coconut, chopped cherries, pecans and pineapple and place in large bowl. Mix well. Also add raisins, if desired.

Melt marshmallows in top of double boiler. Add milk to melted marshmallows and mix well. Remove from heat and pour onto wafer mixture. Mix well.

If desired, pour in any good sweet wine (scuppernong, blackberry, pear). When cool enough to handle, form into "logs" and wrap in waxed paper. Chill at least 24 hours before serving; the longer the chilling, the better.

Slice into 1/2" slices and arrange on small platter. Best served cold. Can be made 2 weeks in advance.
