Chocolate Coconut Ball Recipe

One of the fun things I did on vacation with all the driving time was to read through some old recipe books.  This recipe came from one of those community recipe books either from a church or other organization.  I cut up many books and saved only the “must try” recipes.  Here my first experiment.  These are delicious and if you like mounds bars, I think the recipe is very close to the same.  They are a hit in our house.  Yum.

Chocolate Coconut Balls

1 cup sweetened condensed milk

1 cup butter, melted

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

32oz bag of powdered sugar

2 cups finely chopped walnuts (original recipe called for pecans)

3 cups flaked coconut

2 bags of dark chocolate chips

Combine first six ingredients.  Blend until smooth. Chill over night.  Shape into nut size balls. Refrigerate until ready to dip.  Melt chocolate in microwave or in double boiler. Dip each ball in chocolate and place on wax paper.  Keep balls cool.  Makes 80-100.   Freezes well.
