Sophisticated Sugar: Coconut Centers

CoconutCenters

 

Never did chocolate envelope something so sweet and moist. These Coconut Centers are always a crowd pleaser. Your friends will be amazed to know you made them yourself!

 

Coconut Centers

1/2 pound powdered sugar
7 ounces coconut
1/2 can sweetened condensed milk
6 Tbsp butter (3/4 of a stick), melted
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Dash of salt

Melting chocolate for coating the centers
Wax paper

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except the chocolate. Once thoroughly mixed, place in the refrigerator until the mixture has set up enough to hold it’s shape, approximately 2-4 hours. Use a melon-baller to scoop filling and form into balls by rolling between your hands. Place on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Place back in the refrigerator or in the freezer until ready to dip.

Melt the chocolate and hand dip the coconut centers. After dipping, place on a clean sheet of wax paper and allow to set-up in the refrigerator. This recipe also works very well with chocolate mold.
