A Modjeska is a confection consisting of marshmallow dipped in caramel. It was created in the 1880s in Louisville, Kentucky by confectioner Anton Busath to honor Shakespearean actress Helena Modjeska, who was performing there at the time. Other Louisville shops began to make versions of the candy, which continues to be popular in the region today.
