Coconut Candy

Chocolate Coconut Candy

Chocolate covered coconut candies.

Total time:  1 hour 15 minutes, plus chill time.

Sometimes you feel like a nut…

2/3 c sweetened condensed milk (little less than 1/2 of a 14 ounce can)
1 tsp vanilla
2 c powdered sugar
2 c shredded or flaked coconut
1 bag of your choice of meltable yummy chocolate
optional almonds

In a small food processor or blender, cut up the coconut into very fine pieces.

In a larger food processor or blender, combine milk, sugar and vanilla until smooth.  Remove from unit and stir in coconut.

Press coconut mix into a 9×13 pan.  Spread it all out and press down to make it about 1/4 inch thick.  Refrigerate 45-60 minutes or until firm.

Cut firmed coconut mix into small squares or circles or whatever it is you’re looking to slather in chocolate.   Press almonds into the tops if you so feel like it.

Slather in chocolate.  Chill on wax paper in the refrigerator.

You know what these are… I can’t say their names. And I can’t give you an accurate count because I always eat a bunch of the coconut before it ever makes it to the chocolate.
