Serves | Prep Time about 2 hours | Cook Time


3 cups nuts (opt.)
1 can sweetened condense milk
1 stick of butter (1/4 pound)
2 pounds of powered sugar
2 cups coconut

1 package chocolate chips
2 tablespoons paraffin wax
*Please see note, below

Combine the first 5 ingredients and roll in small balls.

Line 2 cookie sheets with wax paper.

Put the candy balls on the cookie sheets and cool in refrigerator.

Melt chips and paraffin, dip cooled balls of mixture in melted chocolate.

Use a toothpick to hold ball.

Drain and cool on wax paper.

Refrigerate and enjoy.

*Note: I don't use the chocolate chips and paraffin.

I buy almond bark or the new chocolate disks and use those.

You can use a milk or dark chocolate.

It is much easier to use and you don't have to worry about the thickness of the chocolate.

I got this recipe when we lived in TX. It is a close reminder of the Mounds, Almond Joy bar or See's coconut candy, depending on what type of chocolate and nuts you use. I don't put in the nuts at all, because I like Mounds!
