1 lg can evaporated milk, divided
2 lb graham crackers, finely crushed
1/2 lb orange slice candy

Pour half of the evaporated milk over marshmallows and let stand while mixing up other ingredients.
Mix remaining ingredients together and add marshmallows and remaining milk till thoroughly mixed together. (Best to use your hands) Line loaf pans with wax paper and press mixture firmly into pans.
