Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 lb box graham crackers, crushed finely
1 large box of raisins
1 1/2 cups English Walnuts, chopped
1 1/2 cups pecans, chopped
1 large bag of marshmallows
1/2 stick of butter
3/4 can of evaporated milk
3 Tbsp water

Directions:
Directions:
Place marshmallows in large saucepan with 3 Tbsp water and 1/2 stick of butter. Turn on low heat and stir to prevent sticking as this melts.
Place crushed crackers, raisins, and nuts into large bowl, cover with 3/4 can of the evaporated milk and mix these together.
Pour the melted marshmallows over this mixture and start combining. This is going to be a gooey mess and you'll probably need to mix this with your hands. Depending on the variety of marshmallows you buy you may have to add more melted marshmallows or more crushed crackers. Just play with it.
Now pack this mixture firmly into a well buttered bundt pan or jello mold. Refrigerate it for about 2 days.
To serve, dip the pan carefully into hot water and tilt the cake out on a serving dish. Always return the cake to the refrigerator between servings.

Personal Notes:
This was what Mama always made for our special Christmas cake. It's more like a candy...very rich...serve small slices. You can add candied fruit if you like.
