This is a candy recipe my Aunt Dotsie made for me in the late 50's. I've modernized it, hopefully without compromizing the taste. The original recipe melted chocolate and wax together for dipping.

*Be sure to note that it chills overnight or at least all day before finishing. I only mention that because my son called in a panic when he promised to bring some to a potluck and only allowed a couple of hours to make them.
