Super sweet treat for Valentine's Day!

12 oz. maraschino cherries
3 and 3/4 cups powdered sugar
14 oz. shredded coconut flakes
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
12 oz semi sweet chocolate
1 tsp. vanilla

wax paper
paper towels

Step 1: Coconut Mix

1. Combine the milk, sugar, and coconut in a pan and cook on low for 10 minutes. Allow the mixture to cool slightly.
2. Drain the cherries in a paper towel.
3. Spoon a small pile of the cooled coconut mixture onto a cookie sheet covered in wax paper. Press a cherry into the center.
Refrigerate the finished balls for at least four hours.

I sliced the cherries in half and made bite sized ones. So good!
These look super good. When do the vanilla and semi sweet chocolate come into play though? Wouldn't the chocolate make these look a little more brown?
The chocolate and vanilla can be used to dip into or drizzle over the coconut mixture after they form up. Some people preferred them without the chocolate.
OMG this looks so delicious. Making them for sure!
I am soooo making these...soon!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh I love these! They look so so good :D
