I'm a proud wife, mom of three and grandma of many. I've cooked many things over the years, including these marshmallowy chocolates.
1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
2-2/3 cups sweetened shredded coconut, toasted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 milk chocolate candy bar (5 ounces), chopped
1-1/2 teaspoons shortening
In a large bowl, mix marshmallow creme, coconut, vanilla and salt until blended. Refrigerate, covered, at least 1 hour.
Shape mixture into 1-in. balls. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate, covered, at least 3 hours.
In a microwave, melt chocolate and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip coconut balls in chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
