After completely creaming the candy mixture you will powder your hands with some powdered sugar and then roll the dough into bite-size balls and then place them on a sheet of wax paper on a cookie sheet and place them in the refrigerator to chill.

Before you are ready to take the chilled candy balls out of the refrigerator you will melt some of the two types of Almond Bark together and mix thoroughly. You will then use a toothpick to dip your candy balls into the almond bark and then place it on a sheet of wax paper to harden. When we make these, we generally use the whole table and cover it with wax paper. Once the Martha Washington candy balls are hard, you can place them in decorative holiday tins for gift-giving or you can place them in a large covered and sealed bowl until time to eat.
