- 1/2 cup Light
- 1/4 cup Butter or Margarine -- softened,
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla,
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt,
- 3 cups Powdered Sugar,
- 4 drops Yellow Food Coloring,
- 2 drops Red Food Coloring,
- 1 bag Milk Chocolate Chips -- 12 ounces,
- 2 tablespoons
- Combine the corn
syrup, butter, vanilla, and salt in a large
bowl. Beat well with an electric mixture until smooth. Add powdered sugar,
one cup at a time, mixing by hand after each addition. Mix well until
- Remove 1/3 of the
mixture and place it in a small bowl. Add food coloring and stir well.
Cover both mixtures and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
- When mixtures are
firm, roll a small, marble-sized ball from the orange filling, and wrap
a portion of the white filling (approx. twice the size) around it. Form
this filling into the shape of an egg and place it on a cookie sheet that
has been brushed with a light coating of vegetable shortening.
- Repeat process with
the remaining filling ingredients, then refrigerate these "eggs" for 3-4
hours or until firm.
- Combine the milk
chocolate chips with the shortening in a glass or ceramic bowl. Microwave
chocolate on HIGH for 1 minute, then stir and microwave again for 1 minute
more and stir. Use a fork to dip each center into the chocolate, then
tap the fork lightly on the side of the bowl, then place each candy onto
waxed paper. Chill.
- After 1-2 hours of
chilling, dip each candy once more and chill for several hours, or until
completely firm. Wrap eggs in colored plastic wrap, tying ends with colored
bits of ribbon. Store in a cool, dry place until ready to serve.
