​Coconut Drop Refrigerator Candy: Bet You Can’t Eat Just One!

So who likes Mounds coconut candy? If so you will love this easy recipe. It is so easy and fast that I always make during the holidays. These candies make a unique addition to your homemade gifts. I bet you can't just eat one.

You'll need:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup nonfat dry instant milk
  • 3 cups coconut
  • 1 package (6 ounces) chocolate chips

Here's how you make them:

  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Remove from heat. Add the water and vanilla.
  2. Add the powdered sugar and dry milk to the mixture about a 1/2 cup at a time. Mix well.
  3. Stir in the coconut. 
  4. Place a teaspoon full of the coconut mixture on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Repeat until all candies are made. 
  5. Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler.
  6. Put a swirl of the chocolate on top of each piece of candy.
  7. Chill in the fridge. Makes about 25 candies.
