This is a recipe my mother has been making since I was a child. It is one of my favorite holiday candies and it has become something of a tradition in our family. It's not difficult to make and once you've tried it you'll love it!
- 2 pounds sifted confectioners' sugar
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 cups flaked coconut
- 1 stick butter or margarine, melted (4 ounces)
- 3 cups chopped pecans
- Dipping Chocolate, melted (It is easiest to use two cans of milk chocolate cake frosting, melted in the microwave.)
Mix all ingredients together, shape into balls just a bit larger than golf balls, then chill until the batter has hardened. Dip chilled balls in dipping chocolate and let cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
