FREDA's Story

This was my Grandmothers favorite Candy, and Making this sure does bring back Memories. I am Posting this in her Memory.
These are very Creamy, and when Dipped In Chocolate, Are Just to good to pass up.
I have added (3) Versions, One with Nuts and one with out, one dipped in Butterscotch, one in Chocolate. So Many Versions and only one recipe. Your Imagination with this recipe is endless.

Enjoy this very Easy version. Makes Plenty, to "stash" just so you can enjoy "Just a Pinch" before they dissappear.
NOTE: Prep time is 1 hr. Plus chilling time.
Note: I am making these as I am Posting, If they Last Long enough for a Photo it will post soon!

When Butter and Milk Mixture is Melted, Pour into the Pdr Sugar;

Divide Mixture in 1/2.
Place 1 C Nuts in one 1/2 of the mixture.
Place in refer to Chill 1 hr.
Remove from Refer, with small ice cream scoop, Roll into 1" balls. Place on WAX paper or Parchment paper lined baking sheet. Chill again not less than 1 hr.
While mixture is chilling: Melt Choc Chips,& Shortening, Stir til smooth.
Remove balls from Refer, and dip one at a time, allowng excess to drip off, Place on paper lined sheet, and let stand to set.
Store in AIRTIGHT container. . . and enjoy.

If Making ahead of time,
The mixture will freeze for at least 2-3 Months before dipping in Chocolate.
Mixture Needs to Thaw, (Yet chilled,) before dipping, into the Chocolate if You choose to make and freeze these ahead of time.
These maple creams are Heavenly. . . Guaranteed EASY, & Will bring back "old memories" of Days Past.
