Martha Washington Candy

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!
  1. 2 pounds sifted confectioners' sugar
  2. 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  3. 2 cups flaked coconut
  4. 1 stick butter or margarine, melted (4 ounces)
  5. 3 cups chopped pecans
  6. 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.
