Fannie May Candies

"My Mother in law used to make these every year for Christmas for friends, family and lots of coworkers. I have enjoyed making them for my friends for the last few years at Christmas too. I split the dough into 3 balls to make 3 kinds of candy I always use peanut butter, crushed candy canes, and chopped walnuts. You can add what ever you would like to the dough like coconut, cherries, flavorings, rice krispies etc. ---- Note I wrote down 2 pkgs of chocolate bark but I'm not really sure if you need that much. I always make a lot of other dipped candy the same day so I am not sure how many squares of chocolate the recipe takes. I add the extra ingredients and roll into a big ball - I add extra ingredients to my taste. Soooooo add a little mix the ball and taste to your liking =) sorry I guessed on the servings"

<p>My love of cooking started when I was in grade school. My earliest memory was making a wonderful birthday cake from Scratch with my Grandmother in a big bright red bowl. I remember we had a lot of fun making it and eating the cake. <br /><br />I have a wonderful husband and 2 daughters 16yrs and 4yrs old. I have a Social Work degree and worked with mentally ill adults for several years. I really enjoyed my work in a group home. I currently am staying home with my youngest and am not sure what I will do when she goes to school. I might get back into the Social Work field. <br /><br />I am sharing recipes that I want to keep safe from my own family favorites as well as recipes that I would like to try and haven't made yet. <br /><br />Recipezaar is a wonderful place and I love all the recipes everyone shares. I collect cookbooks and have slowed down now that I have access to the wonderful recipes here. <br /><br />I hope you enjoy some of the recipes that I share =) <br /><br />Ann <br /><br /></p>
