How to Make Martha Washington Candy Recipe
- Mix butter, sugar, sweetened condensed milk together in a large mixing bowl. Add coconut, pecans and vanilla, mix well. Chill for about 1 hour.
- Remove from refrigerator and form mixture into small round balls using your hands. Place on a large cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Continue until all the mixture is gone. Chill again for about 30 minutes. This makes it easier to handle during dipping.
- While mixture is chilling, using a double boiler, melt chocolate chips and add the paraffin wax to the chocolate chips.
- Dip the candy into the warm melted chocolate using a tooth pick and set on cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Allow to cool and then place into candy dish or box.
