{In the Kitchen Thursday} Scotch Kiss Recipe

Have you ever had a Scotch Kiss from See's Candies?
If you haven't, you are missing out!
They are delicious!
My whole family loves them!
I wanted to try and make a copy cat recipe for the Scotch Kiss

Scotch Kiss
1 pint heavy cream
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1 bag of large marshmallows
Combine sugar, corn syrup, and cream in a sauce pan.  Bring to boil on low heat stirring constantly. Boil, stirring occasionally until it reaches 235 degrees.  I actually didn't use a thermometer when I made them.  I just waited (for a long time) until the mixture turned a butterscotch color and was thickened to the consistency that I wanted. 

Remove from the heat and the butterscotch will thicken.
Cut the large marshmallows in half
After the butterscotch has cooled down.  If you put the marshamallows in the butterscotch too early, they will melt
Please a marshmallow into the butterscotch, coat the whole marshmallow.  Remove the marshmallow with two forks.  Place them on a sheet of wax paper.
Let them sit out for 24 hours to dry.  I also put mine in the refridgerator, it helps the butterscotch harden a little.
Cut the wax paper and roll them up and twist the ends
And you have a scotch kiss, or the closest thing to it!
I haven't figured out yet how they make it so it doesn't stick to the wax paper
