Chocolate Covered Coconut Bon-Bons
Recipe type: Candy
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cake of canning parafin
  • 8 ounces sweetened coconut
  • 2 pounds powdered sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups diced toasted almonds
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  1. In a large bowl with a large sturdy spoon, stir together coconut, powdered sugar, butter, milk, almonds and vanilla. The mixture will be very thick! Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (I once left this in my fridge for a week and it was just fine).
  2. Remove coconut mixture from fridge and roll into balls about the size of a walnut.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt the parafin. Slowly stir in chocolate chips and keep over very low heat.
  4. Using a sturdy toothpick, dip coconut balls into melted chocolate and set on a sheet of wax paper to cool.
