    tracytrebilcox's Note:

    While cleaning, my mom found her mother's cookbook, which included some of her written recipes, including my favorite, her candy Easter Eggs. Grandma had such a sweet tooth, that it's no surprise that this recipe was hard to read because it had been used so often.

    1. 1
      Heat milk and butter until hot. Add sugar and salt. It will become a stiff fondant.
    2. 2
      Add about a teaspoon of flavoring (she would use the cherry juice from the maraschino cherries). Knead well.
    3. 3
      Let stand for 30 minutes, and then add in fruits and nuts. Shape into egg shapes, and let sit overnight in the refrigerator.
    4. 4
      Melt together chocolate and wax. Dip candy eggs into chocolate mixture, stirring chocolate after each dipped egg, and let dry thoroughly before adding any decorations.
