1 can sweetened condensed milk
3 small packages of icing sugar
2 tablespoons of corn syrup
8 tablespoons butter or margarine
Melt butter,add corn syrup,milk
Mix in icing sugar
These can be flavoured with peppermint,maple ,orange,coffee,flavorings.Wrap a maraschino cherry with the batter for a cherry chocolate.When you get them shaped put on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and put in the fridge to get cool so they dip easier.That firms them up.
Chocolate for dipping
8 ozs of semi-sweet chocolate
1/3 cake of parawax
Melt this in a small pot in a larger pot of hot water on the stove.Keep it on the heat while you dip the chocolates.I use a large darning needle to dip the chocolates.Stick the needle in the prepared
shaped center and dip in the chocolate and parawax mixture.As you dip them put them back on the wax paper to harden.
