COOK TIME

Say hello to great coconut and chocolate flavors with this Coconut Joys recipe. It's one of our favorite potluck ideas, too! They'll have everyone exclaiming, "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!"

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 3 cups flaked coconut
  • 1/3 cup (2-ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
What To Do:
  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat; remove from heat. Stir in powdered sugar and coconut; shape into 3/4-inch balls. Chill until firm.
     
  2. Place chocolate chips in a small heavy-duty, zip-top plastic bag; seal. Submerge in hot water until chocolate melts. Snip a tiny hole in 1 corner of bag, and drizzle chocolate over coconut balls. Let candies stand until firm; store in refrigerator.
Notes

If extra chocolate is what you desire, you'll want to make Chocolate-Covered Coconut Joys. Simply microwave 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips in a 2-cup glass measuring cup at HIGH 1-1/2 minutes or until melted, stirring twice. Then dip coconut candies into melted chocolate, allowing excess to drip, and place on wax paper. Let candies stand until firm; store in refrigerator.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This would be cute to use white chocolate and food coloring...green/red for Christmas, red for Valentines, red/blue for patriotic celebrations, orange/brown for Halloween/Thanksgiving, etc.

Cannot wait to make these. I will use the dark chocolate. Nothing better than chocolate and coconut.

I MAKE THESE ALL THE TIME AND EVERYONE WHO EATS THEM ARE AMAZED HOW GOOD THEY ARE. I TOO USE A WHOLE ALMOND ON SOME AND THEY ARE A BIG HIT WITH CO-WORKERS AND CHURCH FAMILY.

Can't wait to try.

These are scrumptious! I actually stuck whole almonds in some of these (it was reminiscent of my fav candy bar, Almond Joy). I melted a whole bag of dark chocolate morsels in a double-boiler and half-dipped the balls in the chocolate. However, the next time I make them I plan to cup the amount of powdered sugar in half because these are WAY sweet.

This sounds right up my alley. I love Mounds and can hardly wait. Could not be simpler, either way, drizzled or coated.
