Directions:
Place chocolate and butter in 4-cup glass measuring cup with a handle. Microwave, uncovered, at high power for at least 1 minute, stirring once during cooking time, until chocolate is melted. Stir in corn syrup and vanilla.

Return to microwave and cook on high power for 1 minute. Remove from microwave and mix in 1 cup powdered sugar. Add the instant milk powder and stir thoroughly.
Turn mixture onto waxed paper that has been sprinkled with the rest of the powdered sugar. Knead candy until stiff, adding as much powdered sugar as necessary to form a stiff but pliable dough.

Divide candy into four parts, then roll each part into pencil-size strips. Cut each strip into 10 pieces and wrap in waxed paper. You may need to refrigerate the candy to set. 40 pieces
