large package semi sweet chocolate chips 2-4 tablespoons grated parafine at least a 2 pound bag of powdered sugar 2 sticks(1/2 pound)margarine or butter softened at room temperature--(NOT MELTED) 2 teaspoons vanilla, or orange, or lemon, or mint flavoring 2-3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
This is a make up your own candy. Some adjustments in the ingredient amounts may be neccessary. This is a recipe my Mother taught me that she made for the family since I was a small child. Using the 2 sticks of soft margarine/butter, add the 2 teaspoons of your choice of flavoring. Work in, with your hands, an amount of powdered sugar, one cup at a time, until you can no longer work anymore in. Add a couple of tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk, and work in well. If the candy dough is not quite thick enough to roll into balls, add a little more powdered sugar, until it is. Then roll into balls about the 1-1 1/2 inch size. Cover and set aside.(make them small because they are so rich) Up to this point this is a great recipe for very young cooks! Melt chocolate chips in a metal bowl sitting in a pan of water on the stove(make-shift double boiler), and shave up the parafine into the melting chocolate chips. Stir the chocolate well to blend. When the chocolate is melted smoothe, dip the balls into the chocolate, and roll to completely cover, then place ball on buttered wax paper, until all used up.
