I decided to whip up a treat that I remember enjoying as a little girl. These just don’t taste the same as when my grandma or my mom made them, but then does anything taste as good as that?
Turns out Martha Washingtons have a little bit of history to them. The Martha Washington Candy company made them in stores across the U.S. during the 1920s. The Depression took a toll and most of the stores closed down. Still, the sweets were so beloved that generations of recipes were passed down through the years.

For the Filling:
Short-cut Dipping Chocolate:
Put the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval until smooth.
OR Traditional Dipping Chocolate
Mix wax and milk chocolate chips together in a double boiler. Make sure the water at the bottom is simmering and not boiling.
How to put it all together:
