Chocolate Coconut Candies



  • 1-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar

  • 1-3/4 cups flaked coconut

  • 1 cup chopped almonds

  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

  • 2 tablespoons shortening


In a large bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, coconut, almonds and milk. Shape into 1-in. balls. Refrigerate until firm, about 20 minutes.

In a microwave, melt semisweet chips and shortening on high for about 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth.

Dip balls in chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Store in an airtight container. 

 

Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
