Grandma's Chocolate Covered Cremes

YOU NEED A DRY AIR DAY for good success. Cool crisp day is best.

3 cups of sugar
1/3 c. White Karo syrup
1 c. Water


Stir in sauce pan until sugar melts.

Be sure there are no sugar crystals on the sides of the pan. Grandma always wiped the sides with a paper towel. 

Cover& cook on medium until mixture spins a thread. 

Let cool.

Beat 2 egg whites until stiff.

 Add by whipping into the cold mixture. Grandma whipped this by hand. 

Set aside to cool. Grandma set it outside, but southern weather may not permit this. 

Roll into balls and dip in chocolate

If too soft to roll, add a little confectioners sugar


OPTIONAL:

add pecans or a cherry to center of candy
