More Candy!

For those of you keeping, the veil is not finished. But, it will be today. HUGS!
We spend the afternoon and evening making candy yesterday. Here is a recipe for the one that was the fastest...and the best tasting (IMHO). Of course, I was on chocolate overload when I tasted that might have contributed to their getting the highest vote...cause those chocolates were pretty good too!
The ingredients are 1stick of butter (1/4 cup) softened; 2 cups of confectioner (10X) sugar; 1 small bag (about 8 oz) of shredded coconut. Make sure the butter is super soft. I left mine on the counter all it was just right! Mix everything together...(wash you hands and use those...they work the best!). Form into balls. Place on cookie sheet. Put in freezer for about 15-20 minutes. Drizzle melted chocolate over the top (optional). Bet these would be good with chopped pecans added as well!
And, these are great to get kid's involved in rolling them up, or even mixing them there is no cooking involved!!
