I had a recipe from the 1970s. I got it out of the TV Guide, it was for a white fudge, made with Eagle Brand milk, sugar, and Karo syrup. There was "no" chocolate or marshmallow in it. It did have maraschino cherries in it. Does anyone out there have this recipe? I have searched for it and cannot find it, please help.

White Christmas Jewel Fudge
Maybe something like this, with added maraschino cherries? It's dated 1971.
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 pounds sugar
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
3 tablespoons butter
½ pint milk
Put all ingredients in a big pot (larger than 3 quarts) and bring to boil. Boil to soft-ball stage, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until creamy. Pour into greased pan to set.
Cherry Vanilla Fudge
* 3 cups sugar
* 1/2 teaspoons salt
* 1 cup light cream
* 1/2 cup milk
* 1/4 cup light corn syrup
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 2 tablespoons vanilla
* 1 cup candied cherries - chopped
* Candy thermometer
1. Butter an 8 inch square pan. Combine the sugar, salt, light cream, milk, corn syrup and butter in a large pot with a heavy bottom. Cook fudge mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly, until everything comes to a rolling boiling
2. Continue to the cook fudge over medium heat, stirring regularly, until the candy thermometer reaches 238º F. This will be the soft-ball stage. Remove the pan from the heat but leave the thermometer in the pan.
3. Allow the cherry vanilla fudge to cool to 100º F. Then add the vanilla. Beat briskly with a wire whisk or hand beater until fudge thickens and begins to lose its glossiness. Stir in the candied cherries.
4. Pour into your buttered square pan. Allow to cool thoroughly. Cut into squares when firm.
