Recipe – Chocolate Drops

I love Christmas. I especially love making all the wonderful desserts. Here’s my favorite recipe for homemade chocolate drops.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. butter (I like to use real unsalted butter.)
  • 3 lbs. or 10 ½ cups confectioners sugar
  • 1-7 oz. jar marshmallow creme
  • 3-4 lbs. chocolate (I use dark chocolate. The candy is so sweet that the dark chocolate tones it down a bit.)

Thouroughly mix by hand or with dough hooks the butter, sugar, and marshmallow crème.
Roll into 1 inch balls and place on cookies sheets lined with pastry or wax paper.

Freeze for at least 24 hours.

Dip in melted chocolate. (You can melt the chocolate in the microwave or buy a special dipping machine.)

For a variation, put a few drops of candy flavoring in the recipe such as mint or strawberry.

So what is your favorite holiday recipe?

  1. Thanks! Can’t wait to try these and add them to our Christmas desserts. We enjoy so many – pecan turtles, Swedish Cremes, fudge, peanut brittle, chocolate covered cherries, and so many more. But the absolute MUST is Oostakaka, which is a Swedish custard-like dish eaten with berries on top.
