If you like coconut and chocolate, you're going to love this candy! My Mother used to make this at Christmas time when I was a child and I always looked forward to helping her. That was several years ago and we didn't have access to melting chocolate. Instead the original recipe called for a package of chocolate chips and 1 block of parrafin wax. (For candle making) We didn't know that we weren't supposed to eat wax. Oh well...Those were the good old days.
The Pecans are optional but I wouldn't think of making it without them.
Step 1: Ingredients
1 can sweetened condensed milk, 14 ounces
14 ounce package shredded coconut

2 pound bag powdered sugar

2 packages melting chocolate for dipping, you can make 1/2 with milk chocolate and the other 1/2 with dark chocolate.
