This appealing candy is easy to make at home. Rosewater can be found at specialty food stores. When the sugar syrup boils, coat the inside of the saucepan with a brush dipped in water to prevent sugar crystals from forming.
A co-worker gave me this recipe. You can use any flavor cake mix and icing you choose. My preference is lemon, but I have used a red velvet mix and tinted almond bark with green coloring for christmas. You must refrigerate cake mix in order to roll into balls. I find it is easier to work with half of cake and leave other half in the freezer while dipping. Have fun experimenting with different flavors.
too hot to bake? Try these frozen treats, they taste just like the chocolate-chip cookie dough ice cream! Of course you can always cut some the balls up and drop them into your next batch of ice cream....double yum.
My sister's co-worker brought these to a party and they were quite a hit. I don't know where the recipe came from originally.
"Bark" is an artificial chocolate or vanilla candy coating/confectioner's coating used to make a treat called almond bark and can be found at most grocery stores near the chocolate chips.
You can use chocolate chips and white chocolate chips if you don't have almond bark, but I have found that almond bark melts better and is easier to work with.
My niece made these for our 4th of July party and they were gone before dessert was even served! Everyone loved them and kept going back for one more of "those pretzel things"! So easy to make- a definite for my Christmas cookie baskets.
I have not yet tried this, but it is from an overdue library book (From Our Mothers' Kitchens) and I want to return the book tomorrow, so need to get the recipes I want to try copied down, pronto. I would very much like to try this fudge, but I know I don't have the arm strength to pull it off. I may try it with my heavy-duty mixer; what's the worst that could happen? Anita Stewart, the author of the cookbook and the daughter of the recipe's originator, says you can use this recipe to make chocolate fudge: "Add 3 coarsely diced squares of semisweet chocolate to the final mixture to make a creamy chocolate variation."
I was given this recipe as my mom LOVES eggnog and though this would be the perfect treat for her. I am waiting until x-mas to whip up a batch, but I can not wait to see how it comes out! 8-) ( I have not used a candy thermometer, so I had to estimate cooking time!)
I work in Quebec, and this delicious recipe comes from my co-worker's mother-in-law. It is a difficult one compared to some other recipes to master, but... the secret is in the timing. It is a bit more complicated, but the creamy melt in your mouth taste makes it worthwhile.
