RECIPE BACKSTORY
This recipe is from my grandma and are a traditional Christmas treat. CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: My pure substance is the water used to wash your hands before making the balls (H2O). Homogeneous mixtures include margarine, peanut butter, confectionary sugar, vanilla, and paraffin wax. Heterogeneous mixtures include graham cracker crumbs and chocolate bits. Melting the wax and chocolate chips, and making the balls are physical changes. Chemical changes are the photosynthesis that the vanilla bean does, and digestion when you are eating these yummy treats. Submitted by: "Mikaela S."
