Does anyone have a recipe for Needhams aka. maine potato candy that does not use parafin wax? I would really appreciate it. thank you.
Is 'candy coating' acceptable??
4 cups confectioners' sugar
4 cups flaked coconut
3/4 cup cold mashed potatoes (without added milk and butter)
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pound dark chocolate candy coating, coarsely chopped
In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Line a 9-in. square pan with foil; butter the foil. Spread coconut mixture into pan. Cover and chill overnight. Cut into 2-in. x 1-in. rectangles. Cover and freeze.
In a microwave, melt candy coating. Dip bars in coating; place on waxed paper to harden. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 2 pounds.
