Yields: 48 candies

Chilling Time: 1 hr

  • 3 cups pecans
  • 2 cups coconut
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 stick butter at room temperature
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups candy melts

If you find yourself at a loss for what to bring to a holiday potluck, try this collection of 17 Peppermint Flavored Dessert Recipes. You can't go wrong with the season's most popular flavor!


  1. Place pecans and coconut into a food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
  2. Using an electric mixer, cream sugar and butter together until light. Add milk and the chopped nuts and coconut and stir until well mixed.
  3. Roll between your palms into small balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Chill in refrigerator for 1 hour.
  4. Place chocolate melts into a glass or metal bowl and set over a pan of simmering water until it can be stirred with a spoon into a smooth mixture. Dip each ball of candy into the chocolate allowing excess to drip back into the bowl. Place on a clean parchment lined baking sheet and allow to dry.
  5. Completed candies may be stored in the refrigerator, between layers of waxed paper, until ready to serve.
  • Candy melts are especially formulated to give a smooth, glossy chocolate finish that will not melt too easily on the fingers when served.  You can substitute chocolate chips if necessary.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

soooo delicious! big hit with the mr!!

These tasted just like Mounds candies to me! So good if you love coconut!

These were tasty and did remind me of an old-fashioned candy. They were far too sweet to have more than one, though.

The filling was really creamy, which made it even more delicious!

The coconut taste is strong; if you don't usually like coconut, you might not enjoy this. But try it out anyway! It's too easy to pass up.

I don't usually like coconut, but these were so good! They tasted like a vanilla butter cream from Fannie May.

These reminded me of Almond Joys, but I liked them much better. You can't beat homemade candy!

I love how easy these are to make! I would definitely make these again for a holiday where they can be shared with a crowd. They have a delicious combination of coconut and chocolate that reminds me of the good old days.

I think chocolate and coconut is the most underrated combination, so I loved this candy! Next time I will probably make them with a darker chocolate to balance out the sweet coconut filling. I might also add a dash of coconut extract to the filling for even more of that great coconut flavor.
