Coconut Bonbons

Pin It

Well, I think I did it?!  I have never made this candy before.  My husband's favorite childhood candy are these Coconut Bonbons.  He says that it tastes just like the way his granny used to make them! :)  However, he prefers them with the nuts, but I do not.  You may add them, if you wish.  The recipe is adapted from Taste of Home.  I'm glad my adventurous experimental recipe paid off, as it brought a smile to his face... lol

2 2/3 cup flaked coconut (almost a whole bag)
2/3 cup powdered sugar
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 tbs butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
chocolate flavored almond bark candy coating
*or use melted chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl, add coconut, powdered sugar, sweetened condensed milk, butter, and vanilla.  Place in the microwave to warm it up just a bit to stir easier.  The butter should melt on it's own as you mix it all together.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, and drop small spoonfuls of the coconut mixture onto the paper.  Place in freezer or fridge until hardened.

Melt either your chocolate flavored almond bark candy coating or your chocolate chips in a shallow bowl.  Place the coconut balls into the chocolate & rescue with your fork, shaking off extra chocolate.  Or you can just drizzle chocolate over coconut balls on the liner.
