Baking Christmas Cookies

Coconut Candies

This has been a standing Christmas candy in my home for 25 years.  A lady named Betty used to make these and would make mine if I bought enough ingredients for her a batch and me a batch. Before she passed away she shared her recipe and I began making my own.

Here is the recipe I created in My Digital Studio for a cookbook as a gift and then I missed the printing deadline so now I have to get it printed late and gifted late- sigh

Here are the candies rolled and dipped in chocolate

I have a Wilton chocolate melting pot- electric  I used semi sweet chips and some Crisco (to harden it)

Dipped and still wet- they got the taste of approval from my mom the coconut candy coniseur ;o)Dec 2012 042

(2lbs of powdered sugar is 8 cups) the recipe page is now adjusted but I had this saved first- ;o)Dec 2012 042
They are also great with pecans instead of walnuts- but almonds just don't work very good for taste.

Enjoy and have fun!  Be sure you use My Digital Studio to create your Cook book with your favorite recipes as a gift for a wedding, a wedding shower, a family member, friends etc...
