Coconut Joys

These are basically homemade Mounds...I've lost count of how many times we've made them!

1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 oz milk chocolate, melted (I prefer dark chocolate, but both was are good!)
2 tablespoons chopped pecans

In a large bowl, combine coconut, confectioners' sugar, and butter. Form into 1-inch balls.
Make an indentation in the center of each ball (using a spoon handle or similar). Fill with chocolate. Sprinkle with pecans. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Chill until chocolate is firm. Store in refrigerator. Set out about 15 mins before eating so that chocolate isn't too hard.

Yield: 1 1/2 dozen.

Kudos to Taste of Home Quick Cooking 2011!
Kudos to my sister, Kimmy, for the great pic!
