       Title: HOMEMADE CHOCOLATES (LAURA SECORD TYPE)
  Categories: Candies, Chocolate
       Yield: 1 servings
  
       3 lb Icing Sugar
       1 cn Eagle Brand sweetened
       1 x  Evaporated Milk
       1 x  Butter or Margarine
       1 x  Parafin Wax (Parawax)
       1 x  Semi-sweet Baking Chocolate
       1 x  Food Coloring
       1 x  Artifical Food Flavors
  
   The above ingredients are approximate quantities only!!!
   For every cup of icing sugar you use, mix in approximately 1 teaspoon of
   softened butter or margarine. Then slowly mix in enough of the evaporated
   milk to make the mixture of a consistency such that you can form a ball
   with it. (Mixing with the hands is the easiest way).
   Next seperate the mixture into as many parts (3 or 4) as you want different
   flavored chocolates. Then slowly knead in the desired flavoring and food
   color you want in each different part. Now mold the resultant mixture into
   the desired shapes and sizes you want your chocolates to be.
   Now melt in a double boiler (or microwave) two parts semi-sweet chocolate
   to one part parawax. Remove from heat. Immediately, using a tooth pick,
   pick up each shape created above and dip it into the chocolate mixture to
   coat them. Then put them on a piece of wax paper until the chocolate
   coating is set. As the chocolate mixture cools and thickens, reheat it and
   continue. If you run out of chocolate mixture, simply add more chocolate
   and parawax in the proportions listed above.
   
   Note: Suggested flavors and colors:
         - Maple flavor with no coloring
         - Mint flavor with green coloring
         - Lemon flavor with yellow coloring
         - Orange flavor with orange coloring
         - Almond Flavoring with red coloring (small amount to create pink)
   
   Variations:
     - With the Maple flavoring, you can bury a piece of pecan or walnut
       inside the candy before dipping it into the chocolate
     - With the almond flavoring, bury a marachino cherry inside the candy
       before dipping it in the chocolate. Add a drop of cherry juice with it
       to prevent the cherry being too dry.
     - Use the same recipe to make Easter eggs, bunnies etc. Ex. For Easter
       eggs, make a center part of one color and flavor and wrap it in
       another color and flavor before dipping.
   
   Note: Parawax must be used with the chocolate to create a consistency that
         will stick to your candy and not your fingers when set. It is not
         harmful and is used commercially.
