Grate a package of sweetened chocolate

From 1889:

Mrs. Senator Cullom is an expert in candy making as well as a maker of wonderful pies. Her chocolate creams always form a part of her Christmas cooking.

Grate a package of sweetened chocolate. Add two tablespoonfuls of water and set the bowl in a tin of water on the stove to melt. While melting, roll some of the cream into balls, dip these one at a time in the chocolate, lifting out with a fork. Put on a buttered dish to harden. Use any kind of flavoring desired in the cream.
