My grandmother used to make these every year and mail them to us. They freeze really well and ship beautifully. May favorite are the ones rolled in nuts.
- Melt chocolate chips, stir in corn syrup and vanilla.
- Stir in gradually, evaporated milk and sugar.
- Add wafer crumbs and nuts; mix well.
- Let stand about 30 minutes. Then shape into 1 inch balls and roll in additional ground nuts or coconut.
- Chill or freeze.
Nice. A lot like fudge without all the work. Good flavour.
The recipe was super easy to make. My boyfriend and everyone else who tried them loved them. But for me I found them way too sweet and I didn't really like the taste of the vanilla wafers in them. Also, next time I would add less nuts as I thought there were a bit too many. Good for people who love very sweet treats! Freeze very well.
My husband really liked these...he said to put it in the "keeper" file ;-) I think the coconut ones are my favorite, but the ones with nuts were good too. The taste and texture is kind of a cross between fudge and a brownie. It said in the recipe to add the nuts in step 3, however it says to roll the balls in nuts in step 4...so it was a little confusing since nuts were only shown once in the ingredients list. So, I added half to the mix and used the other half of the nuts for rolling. I only made half a recipe though since it was a new recipe...so, if you do 1/2 and 1/2 like I did, you would need more nuts for rolling a whole batch of these. I will probably try them without the nuts in the mix next time...just to see which way I like them best. These are very easy and would be a good one for kids to make. Thanks!
