Walnut Cream Chocolates
Simple and easy cream chocolates recipe.

- ½ a cup of condensed milk,
- ½ a cup of water,

Put the sugar, condensed milk and water over the fire to boil, stir gently but often, and let cook to the soft ball stage, or to 238°F.
Pour on a damp marble and let stand undisturbed until cold; turn to a cream, then gather into a compact mass; cover with a bowl and let stand for thirty minutes; then knead the cream; put it into a double boiler; add the caramel syrup and the vanilla; stir constantly while the mixture becomes warm and thin; add a tablespoonful or two of water, if necessary, and drop the cream mixture into impressions made in cornstarch.
Use two teaspoons to drop the cream.
When the candy is cold, pick it from the starch.
With a small brush remove the starch that sticks to the candy shapes.
Coat each piece with chocolate.
As each piece is coated and dropped onto the oil cloth, set ½ an English walnut meat upon the top.
