My reply: Here is the recipe. Happy rolling!
Orange and Currant Simply Wonderfuls
Simply Wonderfuls are fudge-like sweets made from butter, sugar, and milk powder. They require no cooking. Combine the ingredients, and the result is simply wonderful!
PREPARATION TIME: 20 minutes, YIELD: about 15 sweets
1 1/4 cups sifted icing (confectioners/powdered) sugar,
190g (6.7 ounces) unsalted butter,
1/2 teaspoon finely grated orange rind/zest,
2 tablespoons currants,
1 1/2 cups sifted full-cream milk powder
Cream the butter, sugar, and orange rind in a mixing bowl.
Fold in the currants and powdered milk and knead until a firm fondant-like dough is formed. Pinch off walnut-sized portions and roll into smooth even-sized balls. Chill and serve.
NOTE: to measure the 190 grams butter, just look at the weight of a block and cut off approx right amount. Butter quantities do not have to be super-accurate. Do not melt the butter, it should be room temperature. Orange and currants are just an idea (a nice idea). You could add just about anything.
