This is a recipe from when I was a kid that I would sit and do with my grandmother. Very yummy! We would also make them up for my grandfather who was a diabetic. So he could have a treat.
Melt your bag of chocolate chips and clean paraffin wax together until runny. Take mashed potatoes, mix in sugar (opt. vanilla) to taste. Put into fridge to get hard.
Take a spoonful and roll into balls dipping into melted chip mixture. Set on wax paper to get hard.
You can do this with peanut butter instead of mashed potatoes. No preservatives, fresh healthy candy. Less calories also. I have also put in coconut flakes to make almond joy. Makes wonderful gift, too

Editor's Note: You could also use artificial sweetener instead of the sugar.

Mix sugar, salt, and flour. Rub in butter. Add milk and egg yolks. Cook in double boiler until very thick and holds its shape. While hot, add 1 pkg. chocolate chips and 1/2 t. vanilla. Mix well and then chill. When cool, roll in small balls. You may roll in nutmeats, if desired.
