How to Make Martha Washington Balls


  1. Mix first 5 ingredients together & chill in freezer for about 5-10 minutes.
  2. Dip hands in confectioners' sugar to prevent the mixture from sticking to your hands. Roll out 1/2in to 1in size balls until mixture is gone.
  3. Insert toothpick into each ball then set in freezer again to chill.
  4. While balls are chilling, melt down the block of parafin wax. Once wax is melted add the chocolate chips & stir until melted & smooth.
  5. Dip each ball into chocolate until all are dipped & coated. You may add as many coatings of chocolate as you prefer. I prefer 2 coatings.
  6. Return balls to freezer again until the chocolate is set then remove toothpicks & enjoy!!
