I love Christmas candy, and these simple but special chocolates are among my favorites. They're easy to assemble in paper-lined muffin cups.

  • 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons butter, softened
  • 1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 8 ounces white candy coating
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 1 package (2-1/4 ounces) unblanched almonds


  1. In a large bowl, beat the coconut, milk, confectioners' sugar and butter until blended (mixture will be sticky); set aside.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips, candy coating and shortening; stir until smooth. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon chocolate mixture into 42 paper-lined miniature muffin cups.
  3. Shape 1/2 teaspoonfuls of coconut mixture into balls; gently press into chocolate. Top each with an almond. Spoon 1 teaspoon chocolate mixture over each. Let stand until set. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 3-1/2 dozen.
