            Orange Chocolate Drops

            The irresistible combination of orange and milk chocolate make this candy
            A must on every holiday buffet. This recipe came from a 1936 cookbook.

            1 stick butter
            1 can eagle brand milk
            2 pounds of confectioner sugar.
            2 tsp of orange extract (more or less to taste)
            Orange food coloring – optional

            Soften butter, add milk, mix well; add extract and food coloring Add powdered sugar. It will be real thick! I use my sunbeam mixer but have to finish mixing by hand – it is that thick and don’t want to burn my motor up.

            Once mixed, shape into balls or use a melon baller. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate a few hours or overnight.

            Next step:
            2 – 12 oz bags of milk chocolate chips or semi sweet
            A bit of paraffin wax.

            Melt the choco chips in a double boiler. Add some paraffin to make it smoother for dipping.

            Dip the orange balls in the choc and let cool on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
            I usually refrigerate until nice, glossy and firm. Then they go in an airtight container.
            The longer they sit, the creamier the insides are.


            I give these as gifts in sweet little tins, along with some cookies.
            Sewing mends the soul.

                  This has become a Christmas morning traditon at our house!

                  Christmas Morning Shortcut Cinnamon Buns
                  Makes 20 buns
                  These are made the night before and popped in the oven Christmas morning.

                  20 unbaked frozen dinner rolls
                  1 cup brown sugar
                  1/4 cup instant vanilla pudding mix
                  2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
                  1/3 cup butter, melted

                  Lightly grease a 10 inch bundt cake pan. Place frozen rolls into the pan and sprinkle with brown sugar, the pudding mix, and cinnamon. Pour melted butter over the top. If you don't have a bundt pan, you can use a muffin tin, but they turn out better in a bundt pan.

                  Cover with a clean, damp cloth and leave overnight at room temperature to rise.

                  In the morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
                  Bake rolls for 25 minutes, until golden brown.
                  Turn rolls out onto a serving plate and dig in!

                  I serve them with fruit salad and fresh coffee.
