Saved in 5 recipe boxes and 3 cookbooks
|½||cup||heavy whipping cream|
Mix first 2 ingred. and let set overnight, or for several hours tightly covered.
Add cream and whip with heavy duty mixer or by hand.
Divide dough into 3 separate bowls.
Makes nice batch of each.
For each bowl, add whatever color/flavor, etc you like.
Below are some ideas:
Vanilla cremes: add vanilla ****to taste.
Chocolate cremes: add melted dark chocolate to taste.
Mint center: add drops of peppermint oil and pink coloring.
Black Walnut center: add drops black walnut oil and bl walnuts.
Peanutbutter cremes: add smooth or crunchy peanut butter.
Pineapple cremes: add drops pineapple oil, chopped candied pineapple and chopped pecans.
Jelly: add fruit "flavored" jelly into candy mold with matching flavored oil w/creme center.
Nut center: wrap creme center mix around a nut meat as filling; dip in white/tinted, or milk chocolate.
Chocolate covered cherries (cream type): wrap creme center mix around a well-drained marachino cherry.
Be sure the cherry is SEALED in the dough, chill and dip in choc.
* Be sure to dip as soon as removing from fridge.
The acid in the cherry causes it to start cordialing (liquifying) quickly.
Will liquify some, but some will remain "creamy" because of the butter.
Coconut cremes: add maccaroon coconut and drops or coconut oil For any dipped cremes: Form 1" balls, let crust over and dip in compound coating chocolate.
This is also called "dipping chocolate.
