What’s a Ma…Modjestka?

You may wonder what modjestkas are. They are candies (obviously, if  you spotted the pix) that are named after a Polish actress Helena Modjestka. She obviously  must have impressed a local candy-maker  who made these in her honor (at least ones made from scratch).

They are  sold  all  around northern Kentucky and you may have seen some at  Cracker Barrel  or online. For  which they charge an arm and a leg.

Fuss  or No-Fuss

Of course, you can make them yourself from  scratch,  or if you are devious like I am, use my cheater’s method. Then you can even get the little kids in  on  the help since there is no risk of being burned by heated caramel.

The  simplicity  is  that  these can be  made with small pieces of marshmallows wrapped inside a soft chewy caramel which is then pinched closed.

I assure you  it  tastes pretty much the  same, costs a fraction of the  store bought  type and make excellent gifts. So get the kids around the kitchen table for an hour of  fun. Imagine  the pride they will have  in crafting  their own  candies.
