Dessert -Martha Washington Candy
Could not resist putting this recipe on this site too. It was also in the newspaper as a winning candy for this month. This Christmas candy sounds like it would be a hit.
MARTHA WASHINGTON CANDY
1 stick soft margarine
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
2 pounds powdered sugar
1 cup coconut
1 & 1/4 cups pecans
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
1/2 block paraffin wax
Stir together margarine and milk until smooth. Add sugar and mix well. Then add coconut and pecans. Chill dough at least 4 hours or overnight in refrigerator. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. In a double boiler melt chocolate and wax. Use a toothpick and dip chilled balls in chocolate. Cool on wax paper. Makes 5 to 6 dozen. Keep refrigerated.
