How to make it

  • In large mixer bowl, combine Eagle Brand, extract and food coloring if desired.
  • Add 6 cups sugar; beat on low speed until smooth and well blended.
  • Turn mixture onto surface sprinkled with confectioners sugar.
  • Knead lightly to form smooth ball.
  • Shape into 1−inch balls.
  • Place 2 inches apart on wax paper−lined baking sheets.
  • Flatten each ball into a 1 ½−inch patty. Let dry
  • 1 hour or longer; turn over and let dry at least 1 hour.
  • Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave set on high for 2 minutes. Stir halfway through the heating time. Melt thoroughly, but do not over heat.
  • Melting the chocolate chips can also be done using a double−boiler over low heat.
  • With fork, dip each patty into warm chocolate (draw fork lightly across rim of pan to remove excess coating).
  • Invert onto wax paper−lined baking sheets; let stand until firm.
  • Store covered at room temperature or in refrigerator.
