Martha Washington Candy
8 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups sweetened flake coconut
4 cups chopped pecans
2 (24-ounce) packages chocolate-flavored almond bark candy coating
Prep Time: 45 mins
Makes: 6 dozen
In a large bowl, combine the powdered sugar, butter, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Work the mixture with your hands until it is well combined. Add the coconut and pecans. Mix well.
Roll the mixture into 3/4-inch balls. Chill at least 30 minutes.
Melt the almond bark using directions on the package. Using a large fork, dip the chilled balls into the melted chocolate, tapping the fork on the edge of the bowl to remove excess chocolate. Place the coated candies on wax paper to cool.
Stacey’s Recipe Notes: The amount of almond bark depends on how thick you coat the candies. Two 24-ounce packages is more than enough.
