|This is a base for sooo many candies, a must learn if you're truly interested in making your own confections!
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup light corn syrup
4 cups sugar
1/4 tsp salt
*1/2 cup Mazetta or marshmallow creme
Set aside a 9 inch x 13 inch ungreased baking pan. In a heavy 4 quart saucepan, combine cream, milk, corn syrup, sugar and salt. Place over medium high heat and stir occasionally
with a wooden spoon until mixture comes to a boil. If any sugar crystals are present, brush off sides with a wet pastry brush.
Clip on candy thermometer. Cook syrup to 238 degrees F. or the soft ball stage.
Remove from heat, and without stirring, pour into the baking pan. Without excess movement, place in refrigerator or other cool place.
When bottom of pan no longer feels warm, begin stirring fondant with a wooden spoon. You don't have to stir rapidly, just keep the mixture moving. If desired, after 15 minutes of stirring, you can add marshmallow creme. If you wish to flavor the batch, variations are below, and do it at this time. Stir until it becomes very stiff and loses it's gloss.
At this point it has set up.
If it is too stiff to handle, break off into small pieces and work with them in your hands like modeling clay. You can also wrap in plastic wrap and polace a warm tea towel over for 15 minutes to soften.
