This is another recipe from my childhood, and I must say - one of my very favorites!
*This makes a LOT so you might want to half the recipe - or just give some away. :)
1 c margarine, melted
1 can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
2 c chopped nuts (I use walnuts)
2 lb bag of powdered sugar
2 c flaked coconut
24 oz chocolate chips
4 TBS shortening
In large bowl, mix together margarine, milk, nuts, powdered sugar and coconut. Put in refrigerator and chill overnight.
Form dough into balls about the size of a walnut.
Melt chocolate chips and shortening in the top of a double boiler over hot (not boiling) water. You can melt the chocolate in a microwave, too. Stir every 30 seconds to 1 minute, until completely melted and then reheat when it starts to cool.
Dip dough balls into chocolate using a fork. Drop on wax paper to cool and set.
I like to keep the Bon Bons in the refrigerator, because I think they taste good cold, but you don't need to.
Hope you like them!
