Posted: Updated:

We continue with our series featuring award-winning recipes from the Oklahoma State Fair.

This Saturday, we're in for a sweet treat with the champion of the Karo Syrup's Best Bite-Sized recipe contest. Elsie Haner of Edmond is here to show us how to make her Creamy Dreamy Meltaways.

Creamy Dreamy Meltaways



1/4 cup Karo Light Corn Syrup

1 can sweetened condensed milk

2 cubes unsalted butter, melted

2 cups angel flake coconut, ground in blender

2 cups pecans, chopped small in blender

1 tablespoon vanilla

2 pounds powdered sugar

Dipping Chocolate

1 package milk chocolate chips

1/2 bar gulf wax


In a large mixer bowl, combine Karo light corn syrup, sweetened condensed milk, butter, coconut, pecans, vanilla and powdered sugar on medium speed until consistency of a stiff cookie dough. Add more powdered sugar if needed. Chill dough for 4 hours or overnight in refrigerator. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. With a small cookie scoop make balls and place on cookie sheet. Cover and freeze until solid (or overnight or until you are ready to dip).

Melt together in double boiler the milk chocolate and gulf wax. When chocolate is melted, use a toothpick inside of the frozen ball to help dip the balls in chocolate quickly. Lay on wax paper to dry. Remove tooth pick.

Store in air tight container in refrigerator or freezer. Can be frozen for up to 2 months dipped or undipped. Take out of freezer 2 hours before serving. Yields: about 4 dozen.
