I apologize for the lack of posting lately, but I've had a ton of things going on. And I'll be on a blogging break on Monday & Tuesday so I wanted to pop in one last time!
So, I mentioned Martha Washington candy the other day in a post and it seems I've struck some interest from a few of you. So I thought I'd join my mom while she made this magnificent stuff and give you a full lowdown on what's inside these tasty treats!
I think Mom is excited to be in a blog post too, so ya'll be sweeties and show her some love! Hey Mom! :)
Okay, let's get started, shall we? :)
2 lb. powdered sugar
1 can Eagle Brand Milk
1 stick butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
4 cups chopped pecans
Semi sweet chocolate squares
3 sticks paraffin wax
Turn paraffin wax and chocolate squares on the stove and let it be melting down.
Mix powdered sugar, Eagle Brand Milk, butter, vanilla, and pecans in a large bowl.
Make sure you get it all mixed in equally.
Roll into balls and lay spaced out on wax paper.
Once your chocolate is ready, take off heat and let it cool.
Use toothpicks to dip balls into chocolate.
Allow candy to cool.
