      Fantastic candy! I think that anyone who loves coconut would love these Needhams. I made them over the holidays, and they went over very well. I lined the pan with buttered waxed paper, pressed the filling in, then laid another section of buttered waxed paper over the top. I took a slightly smaller pan and pressed it firmly and evenly on the top to make sure the filling was an even layer. I left the waxed paper pressed to the top and refrigerated overnight before proceeding. Rather than the chocolate/paraffin mix, I simply dipped in melted bittersweet chocolate. This recipe is a winner for sure--thanks for sharing it with us!

      This is the best recpie I have ever found since I was introduced to making these delightfully wounderful little candies. I have tried many different ways to get the entire candy covered in the chocolate, the best way I found is by using a simple fork. By laying the candy on it and dipping it into the chocolate mixture, it looks just like one can find back home in the candy shops that make there own candies :). Thank you again for posting this taste of candies from my birth state.

      This recipe is actually taken from Marjorie Standish's cookbook, 'Cooking Down East' as are at least some of the other needhams recipes I see on line. If you want a good down-home cookbook, buy it! I have been using it for years. This needham recipe is only one example of a recipe that has stood the test of time.

      I grew up in Lewiston Maine where the original Needhams were made. They are WONDERFUL! I make them every Christmas and my family just loves them.

      Absolutely delicious. I made this for the homemade candy stand at our annual school fundraiser. It was a hit!! Everyone wants the recipe. We will all be making your Needhams on a regular basis. Thanks.
