    Joyce Heddin's Note:

    Paraffin wax (Gulf Wax) is a food-grade, indigestible wax used commonly in the past to seal jams/jellies. These days, it's used to help chocolate to be easily handled. If you'd prefer not to use that ingredient, substitute chocolate-flavored bark (confectioner's candy coating) for the chocolate/wax mixture.

      This is fabulous!!! My BF has been telling me about these candies that his Grandma made when he was a kid. Recipe lost, family has been without them for thirty years...til now!!! I am making a huge batch of these for his family for Xmas -- it will be the first time I'm meeting most of them, so you just helped me score major bonus points with them!!! Thanks so much - BF says they are PERFECT!!!!

      This is a great recipe!!! It made approx. 100 pieces. I used a 2x2 inch square of wax for dipping. I also used almond extract, it gave them a cherry like flavor and I was out of the vanilla. So much positive feedback on these. Thanks for posting!!
