Coconut Snowman
Desserts
Contributed by: Darlene Clark
Ingredients:
  • 4 cups flaked coconut, coarsely chopped
  • 33â�„4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 2â�„3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1â�„4 cup butter, softened
  • 11â�„2 cups vanilla or white chips
  • 2 packages (111â�„2 oz. each) milk chocolate chips
  • 1 package (101â�„2 oz.) large marshmallows
  • Black, green and red decorator icing
In a large mixing bowl, combine coconut, confectioner’s sugar, milk and butter. Shape into 11�4 in. balls; place on baking sheets lined with waxed paper. Loosely cover and chill for 11�4 hours or until firm.
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt vanilla chips; stir until smooth. Dip balls in melted chips; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Chill until firm, about 15 minutes. Set aside remaining melted vanilla chips.
Melt the chocolate chips; stir until smooth. For hats, dip each marshmallow in chocolate; place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet, allowing excess to drip down. Swirl the marshmallows in chocolate on waxed paper to create hat brims. Chill until firm, about 15 minutes.
Level the top of coated coconut balls. Attach marshmallow hats with the reserved melted vanilla chips. With icing, draw a face on each ball. Chill in freezer.
