Coconut Bon-Bons


These coconut candies are one of my husband's all time favorites. They are surprisingly easy and VERY delicious. I am not really a huge coconut fan, but these are super good. They've been a Christmas tradition around here, but I'm thinking they would be a better Valentine's Day tradition. These would be so easy to wrap up in a small cellophane bag or a small box for gifts for teachers, friends or other loved ones. They hold up very well.

Recipe -

3 cups of coconut (I used sweetened.)
2 cups of powdered sugar
1 melted stick of butter
2 cubs of unsweetened Baker's chocolate

All you do is stir the coconut, powdered sugar and melted butter in a big bowl! Roll the coconut mixture in to a small ball, place on a cookie sheet, and make a small indentation in the top. Fill the indentation with melted Baker's chocolate and leave to set! I put mine in the fridge for a few minutes, and they were good to go!

(Note, I made these a little bigger than normal, so I could try to get a better picture. They should be the right size for a single bite. They are REALLY rich!)
