 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  cup           butter or margarine -- softened
    1      teaspoon      salt
   14      ounces        sweetened condensed milk
    2      pounds        powdered sugar -- plus
    2      cups          powdered sugar
                         assorted food colorings
                         vanilla, almond, lemon, maple or
                         peppermint extract
    1      pound         chocolate flavored candy coating
                         or vanilla flavored candy coating
                         tube decorator frosting
      In a large bowl, beat margarine and salt until fluffy;
 gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk, then 2 pounds
 powdered sugar until well blended.  Divide into 4 equal
 portions.  In medium bowls, tint each portion with a few
 drops food coloring; flavor each protion with 1/2 teaspoon
 desired flavoring.  On a smooth surface, knead 1/4 to 1/2
 cup powdered sugar into each portion until smooth.  Shape
 into 4 or 6 eggs.  Place on baking sheetes; cover and chill
 until firm, about 4 hours or overnight.  Insert a 2-pronged
 fork into the bottom of each chilled egg.  Dip into warm
 candy coating; let excess coating drip off.  Place on waxed
 paper lined baking sheets; let stand or chill until firm.
 Decorate as desired with frosting.  Store covered at room
 temperature or in the refrigerator.  If using vanilla
 flavored candy coating, you may need to dip twice.

 NOTES : I also used cherry, orange and rum flavoring with
 good results.  I added a little nutmeg to the rum flavored
 candy.  Some of the flavorings required more than the 1/2
 teaspoon called for in the recipe. I got well over one
 hundred 1-inch balls from this recipe and used a full 28
 ounce package of chocolate candy coating.
