  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 7 cups powdered 10X sugar
  • 3 cups flaked coconut
  • 2 sticks margarine
  • 1 can evaporated milk (one can is more than enough)
  • Dipping chocolate

Directions

  • Place 10X sugar in a large bowl.
  • Add margarine and work into sugar by rubbing sugar and margarine between palms of hands.
  • Add cocunut and mix well (don't even try to use a mixer -- this all has to be done by hand)
  • Add enough milk (a little at a time) until candy forms a soft ball.
  • If it's too wet, add more sugar.
  • Work candy until smooth and creamy by kneading it like bread dough.
  • Form into small eggs (they will be bigger after dipped in chocolate), place on cookie sheet covered in waxed paper, and refrigerate for about an hour.
  • Melt chocolate (don't overheat it or it will get lumpy, and nothing can correct that).
  • Dip eggs, and place on cookie sheet with clean wax paper

Notes

This is also from my Great Aunt Theda. I haven't actually tried these yet, but I'll let you know how they are/post a picture when I do.
