Candy Recipes

The chocolate is called summer coating. We use a brand called merkins, wilton also makes one. You can melt your choc. in the microwave but be very careful, if you get it to hot you will destroy. Put about a pound in a bowl and start with a minute, stir choc. and continue 10 seconds at a time stirring each time until melted. You can get white, pink, yellow, red, orange, green and a few others. these are all the same vanilla taste. you can get milk chocolate, dark choc, butterscotch and peanut butter flavor.
Coconut Bon Bons:
2 cups dry coconut ( dry coconut can usually be purchased at the candy store)
1/2 cup regular coconut
3/4 cup hot light Karo syrup. Heat the syrup until just hot, do not boil
Mix syrup with coconut and let set until cool. With damp hands roll mixture into balls and set on waxed paper. Melt your candy coating, Any color you like.
Using a dipping spoon, which you can purchase or a reg. spoon dip the candy balls in the chocolate and put on the wax paper to dry. Store in a candy can or covered container. Will last for weeks. You will love these.
Spread peanut butter between 2 ritz crackers and dip in white chocolate for a wonderful treat. Set on wax paper to dry.
