1/2 cup butter, softened
2 1/4 cups confectioner’s sugar
8 oz shredded coconut
1/2 tsp vanilla
8 oz good quality melting chocolate
Combine butter and sugar together until creamy. Add in coconut and vanilla.
Place mixture into fridge for 15-30 minutes to make the next stage easier.
Form chilled mixture into balls, placing them on a cookie sheet covered with parchment or wax paper. Place back in the fridge to chill and harden.
Melt chocolate in over water, in a double-boiler. Roll chilled coconut balls in the chocolate and place them back on the cookie sheet. Return to fridge or freezer to harden.
