Martha Washington Balls

100_4960

I know this picture looks just like the picture of the peanut butter balls but it really is a different picture.  These are the Martha Washington Balls.  The recipe is:

2 boxes powdered sugar, 1 stick butter softened, 1 can sweetened condensed milk, 1 tsp. vanilla.  Using mixer, blend ingredients together.   Mixture will be stiff.  Add 4 cups chopped pecans.  Put powdered sugar on hands and roll into small balls.  Chill.  Dip balls into melted chocolate.  Use 4 cups chocolate chips and 1/2 block parafin wax.   DELICIOUS!

Temperatures are super cold here.  Wind chill is close to zero again with gusts of about 50 mph but we are toasty warm inside with a nice fire going.  Hubby was able to get propane for the gas logs Saturday.  This really helps keep the house warm.  Our little woodstove is a work horse.  However it  was severely overworked last week trying to do the job all by itself with zero temps.  Pray our water doesn’t freeze again. 

We are going to get some tires put on the front of the car.  Hubby didn’t work today, so he is going with us.  I’m glad.   Enjoy your day and God bless.
