  1. In a medium bowl, mix together butter, confectioners' sugar, and sweetened condensed milk. Mix in the coconut. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, and refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.
  2. Melt chocolate and shortening over a double boiler, stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat when melted, and stir to make sure the shortening is fully incorporated. Use toothpicks to hold the balls while dipping in the chocolate. Set on wax paper to dry.

The "dough" is very sticky. The trick is...pat your hand in confectioners sugar every now and then to keep the dough from sticking to your hands. Works like a charm!

Definitely put dough in freezer for an hour or so, and it helps to freeze the little dough balls on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper before dipping them in chocolate. I like dipping mine i...

These taste wonderful! They are very sweet so make them smaller. It wouldn't roll into balls so I added more powdered sugar to thicken and put it in the fridge for 1/2 hour and then rolled into ...
