4 sticks butter, melted
1 2 pound bag of powdered sugar
2 cups chopped pecans
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 tsp vanilla
10 oz bag of coconut
1 12oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
¾ block of paraffin wax (find in the canning section of your grocery store)
Take a large bowl, and combine all these ingredients thru the coconut. Mix well. Set in the fridge for a couple hours to cool.
Around the 2nd hour, take out a small saucepan and combine the wax and the chocolate. Let the mixture melt over medium heat. Once the mixture is melted; set the heat on low/warm. Now, remove the candy mixture from your fridge, and using a small ice cream scooper; scoop out the candy, roll into a ball, and dip into the chocolate mixture. I used a slotted spoon to help coat the candies in chocolate. It can get pretty messy with your hands. Then, place the candies on a wire rack with parchment paper under it so the candies can set. It should make around 60+ candies. Best to keep in the freezer as they can get really soft if left at room temperature. Enjoy!
