This is my family's all-time favorite candy recipe. But watch it; these are absolutely addictive! In our household, it is not Thanksgiving or Christmas without these around. This recipe was handed down to me by my dear mother-in-law. Please note I have made these with and without the paraffin, and the paraffin does give a better texture to the chocolate and aids in the dipping process, keeping the chocolate from becoming too thick. I also prefer to use the cinnamon graham crackers, but you don't have to. These make great gifts, too!
