MARTHA WASHINGTON CHOCOLATE COVERED CANDY

 

  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings:
  • Preparation Time: about 2 hours

Ingredients

  • 3 cups nuts (opt.)
  • 1 can sweetened condense milk
  • 1 stick of butter (1/4 pound)
  • 2 pounds of powered sugar
  • 2 cups coconut
  • 1 package chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons paraffin wax
  • *Please see note, below

Directions

  • Combine the first 5 ingredients and roll in small balls.
  • Line 2 cookie sheets with wax paper.
  • Put the candy balls on the cookie sheets and cool in refrigerator.
  • Melt chips and paraffin, dip cooled balls of mixture in melted chocolate.
  • Use a toothpick to hold ball.
  • Drain and cool on wax paper.
  • Refrigerate and enjoy.
  • *Note: I don't use the chocolate chips and paraffin.
  • I buy almond bark or the new chocolate disks and use those.
  • You can use a milk or dark chocolate.
  • It is much easier to use and you don't have to worry about the thickness of the chocolate.

Notes

I got this recipe when we lived in TX. It is a close reminder of the Mounds, Almond Joy bar or See's coconut candy, depending on what type of chocolate and nuts you use. I don't put in the nuts at all, because I like Mounds!
