Christmas is one of my busiest time in the kitchen making candy. For some reason I find that it “just doesn’t feel like Christmas” until I have made a few batches of these Coconut Truffles. If the thought of making any kind of candy scares you, this is one recipe you MUST try. It is so simple and there is no way to fail. This candy doesn’t care about the weather. (most candy is effected by the humidity in the air) Simple, sweet and No fail…..PERFECT!!
Christmas Coconut Truffles
1 Cup Butter, melted & cooled
1 (14 oz.) Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
2 (10 oz.) Shredded Sweetened Coconut
1 (20 oz.) Chocolate Bark
In a large bowl combine the coconut, powdered sugar, tossing together to coat. Pour the sweetened condensed milk and butter in and stir to combine. Mixture will be thick and sticky. Cover the bowl and let chill over night. The next day using a small cookie scoop or table spoon, scoop out truffles and roll into balls. Place onto a baking sheet that has a sheet of wax paper on the bottom. Place into freezer to chill for 10-15 minutes. While the truffles are chilling, you can melt your chocolate bark according to the package directions. When the truffles are firm, dip each one into the melted chocolate, placing back onto the wax paper. I like to chill them again for 30 minutes. That is it! Super Easy huh?~ Happy Holidays, Lark
