chocolate covered coconut balls.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (16 ounce) boxes confectioners' sugar
  • 12 cup butter, softened
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 (14 ounce) package shredded coconut
  • 1 12 cups chopped almonds
  • 1 (12 ounce) package milk or 1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. With an electric mixer cream together sugar & butter in a bowl. Add milk until well blended. Stir in almond extract, coconut & nuts (you may omit the nuts if you do not like them). Roll the candy filling into one inch balls and place on waxed paper. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  2. Using a double boiler melt chocolate until smooth (you may also melt chocolate in the microwave according to the directions on the chocolate). I like to add approximately 2 Tbls of butter or shortening in the chocolate but this is not necessary to do so. Dip the balls in chocolate and let stand at room temperature until set.
  3. Store in a tightly sealed container and preferable in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
