Martha Washington

Martha Washington Candy:

1/2 Cup butter melted
2 lbs Confectioners sugar
1 can condensed milk
4 cup very fine chopped pecans
12oz. Pkg semi-sweets
1/4 bar paraffin

Combine butter, milk, sugar, and pecans. Mix well. Shape into 1 inch balls. Place on a cookie sheet and chill until very firm. Next melt chocolate and paraffin in double boiler remove from heat and let cool slightly. Dip chilled balls into chocolate using a toothpick. Rechill...

Add a we bit of burbon and they are called Burbon Balls...

Is this what I see some of you refer to as Bon Bons??? Same thing?
