~Chocolate Coconut Candy~

Here's a candy recipe that you will love, if you like coconut. A friend of mine made me this candy back at Christmas, and I told her I had to have the recipe! The first time I ate this stuff....I almost made myself sick :( I ate so much. I made some on Valentines Day to give to my Valentines... ;) I forgot to take pictures of every step....you see, My son had some of his friends (like 20 of them) over when I was making this candy....I couldn't think clearly with all them youngins around, so that's why I forgot to take some of the pictures. lol :)
This was all that was left, by the time I remembered to take pictures of the finished recipe. ;)
Not all the ingredients are pictured here...so here is the list
14 oz bag of coconut
1 stick of softened butter {not melted}
1 and a 1/2 boxes of powdered sugar
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 bag of milk chocolate chips
1 bag of dark chocolate chips
1/2 of paraffin block.
Start with your bag of coconut and add the softened butter.

I just went ahead and used my hands.....so that the butter and coconut was mixed good....that's the best way to do it! :) Oh, and then you get to lick you fingers off....Yummy!!! Then....

Add your 1 1/2 boxes of sugar and your sweetened condensed milk and mix well.

Then form any size balls...I used this scooper to help...I like to keep my balls bite size. You will not want to use your hands to form the balls...trust me....it just doesn't work well.

This will make tons! I did not count them but I would guess 60-70. It will depend on the size of balls you form.

Cover and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

When you are ready to cover them with chocolate....
Melt you 1/2 of paraffin block in a double boiler or your bowl placed over boiling water.
When paraffin block in melted.............
Add both bags of chocolate chips and melt...then dip your coconut balls into the chocolate.....let set of wax paper until set....just take a few mins.
You can store these at room temp or in the fridge. I like them cold....I just like the consistency of them better cold.

There you have it....Very easy and sooooo goooood! :) I know I will be making these again and again! They were a big winner here!
I hope every one had a Lovely Valentines Day. Love and Blessings to you all, Nancy

Snuck on over here from another blog and I'm glad I did!

I'm not a coconut fan except in certain things, but these sound absolutely scrumptious!

I believe I have everything on hand to make this except the paraffin and coconut - guess what I'm writing on my grocery list right now?

This sounds so good but I am afraid I might eat all 70. But maybe to take to church so I would only eat about 10. Thank you so much. Great Christmas recipe.
