How to make it
- Line two large cookie sheets with waxed paper. Set large wire cooling rack
- on paper; set aside.
- Place coconut in large bowl; set aside.
- Place corn syrup in a 1−cup glass measure. Microwave on high (100%) 1 minute
- or until syrup boils. Immediately pour over coconut. Work warm syrup into
- coconut using the back of a wooden spoon until coconut is thoroughly coated.
- This takes a little time, and yes, there is enough syrup.
- Using 1 level measuring tablespoon of coconut, shape into a ball by
- squeezing coconut firmly in palm of one hand, then rolling between both
- palms. (HINT: Measure out all of the coconut then roll into balls.) Place 2
- inches apart on wire racks. Let dry 10 minutes. Reroll coconut balls so
- there are no loose ends of coconut sticking up.
- Place milk chocolate and shortening in a 4−cup glass measure or 1 1/2 quart
- microwave−safe bowl. Microwave on high 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture can
- be stirred smooth and is glossy; stirring once or twice.
- Working quickly, spoon 1 level measuring tablespoon of the chocolate
- over each coconut ball, making sure chocolate coats and letting excess
- chocolate drip down onto waxed paper. While chocolate coating is still soft,
- lightly press whole almond on top of each. Let stand to set or place
- in refrigerator. Store in a single layer in airtight container.
- Keeps best if refrigerated. Makes 26.
