Coconut Bon Bons

Coconut Bon Bons
1 cup warm corn syrup
2 1/2 cups desiccated coconut
Melted chocolate
Heat corn syrup and mix with coconut. Let stand 1 hour or until coconut has soaked up syrup. Roll into balls, and dip into chocolate.
2
* 1 cup margarine, softened
* 2 pounds confectioners’ sugar, sifted
* 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
* 3 cups coconut
* 1 cup finely chopped walnuts
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 (12 ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips
* 2 tablespoons shortening

1. In large bowl, combine margarine, confectioners’ sugar, condensed milk, coconut, chopped walnuts and vanilla. Stir well. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours, or until mixture has thickened enough to roll into balls. Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls and place close together, but not touching, on cookie sheets. Freeze until hard.
2. While bonbons are freezing, line a cookie sheet or flat surface with waxed paper. Combine chocolate chips and shortening in the top of a double boiler, over, not in, simmering water. Stir until melted. Using a toothpick or a fork, dip each bonbon in the melted chocolate. Place on waxed paper to dry. When chocolate has hardened, store bonbons in plastic bag in the freezer.
