COCONUT SNOWMAN

 

  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 48
  • Preparation Time: 4 hours + chilling

Ingredients

  • * 4 cups flaked coconut, coarsely chopped
  • * 3-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • * 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • * 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • * 1-1/2 cups vanilla or white chips
  • * 2 packages (11-1/2 ounces each) milk chocolate chips
  • * 1 package (10-1/2 ounces) large marshmallows
  • * Black, orange and red decorator icing
  • * Green leaf-shaped decorator candies

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine the coconut, confectioners' sugar, milk and butter. Shape into 1-1/4-in. balls; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Loosely cover and chill for 1-1/4 hours or until firm.
  • In a microwave, melt white or vanilla chips at 70% power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth.
  • Dip balls in melted chips; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Chill until firm, about 15 minutes. Set aside remaining melted vanilla chips.
  • In a microwave, melt semisweet chips on high for about 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth.
  • For hats, dip each marshmallow in chocolate; place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet, allowing excess to drip down. Swirl the marshmallows in chocolate on waxed paper to create hat brims. Chill until firm, about 15 minutes.
  • Level the top of coated coconut balls. Attach marshmallows hats, using reserved melted vanilla chips. With black icing, add eyes and a mouth to each face; with orange icing, add a nose. Use red icing and leaf candies for holly on hats. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 4 dozen.
