a little too waxyDecember 11, 2008 By dearjurisprudence
Overall, this is a good recipe for Martha Washingtons. However, I feel an entire bar of paraffin is a little too much wax for a 12 ounce bag of semisweet morsels. If you're making your own chocolate coating (which I highly recommend), cut down the amount of paraffin to 2/3 bar per 12 ounce bag of morsels. I used Ghiradelli chocolate and Gulf Wax. Next time, I'll cut down on the paraffin a bit..

Martha Washington CandyJuly 30, 2008 By mhancock37979
My Grandmother loves this candy. I have also made it with about a cup or so of chopped dried fruit like cherries. That's even better! I also scoop the mixture out with a cookie dough scoop and then stick them in the freezer before I dunk them in the chocolate coating so that they hold their form better.
