Ingredients



Instructions

  1. Melt 1 cup morsels in small, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; stir. Morsels may retain some of their shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until melted.
  2. Add corn syrup; stir until well combined. Mixture will be a little grainy
  3. Gather up and form a ball. Wrap with plastic wrap and let stand for at least 1 hour or until cool.
  4. Place paper liners on baking sheet.
  5. Knead mixture, lemon peel and 1 to 2 drops food coloring on work surface lightly dusted with powdered sugar until zest and color are worked through and mixture is smooth. Plastic gloves can be worn to prevent food coloring from dying hands. Shape into forty-two 3/4-inch balls and flatten slightly. Place one in each liner.
  6. Melt remaining morsels and vegetable oil in small, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; stir. Morsels may retain some of their shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until melted.

  8. Refrigerate for 20 minutes or until firm.
  9. Store in covered container in refrigerator.
