      This is the fruitcake recipe I have been searching for. I don't like the ice box fruitcakes that have those hard citrus pieces in it. This one is loaded with nuts and good tasting fruit like candied pineapple and cherries. I also added some dried papaya that was in some trail mix I had. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it turned out too dry and crumbly, so I decided to melt a few more marshmallows in some regular milk. This did the trick and it was perfect. I will definitely use this recipe again, with my modifications.
