Here is an easy Christmas Candy that your kids can help make, more importantly they are really yummy. As far as a dipping candy, these are the easiest ones I've ever made so that is a plus too.
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
1 can Sweetened Condensed milk
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 cup minature semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (that is if your kids will eat nuts)
1 1/2 pounds chocolate candy coating for dipping
Cream butter, brown sugar until fluffy. Add flour, milk and vanilla- mix well. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts. Shape into balls; place on waxed paper lined baking sheets and refrigerate for 1-2 hours until firm.
Melt the chocolate coating in batches in the microwave. If you've never dipped chocolates, melt it for 1 minute first and then 30 sec. intervals until it is smooth, stiring in between. Dip balls in and place on wax paper lined baking sheets. Refridgerate until hard. Store in air tight container in the fridge.
Happy Candy Making!!
