  • ½ cup unsalted butter 1 stick
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 cups sweetened or unsweetened shredded coconut up to you!
  • 3 to 4 ounces chocolate dark, semi-sweet or bittersweet, chopped and melted
  • Special tool suggested: a cookie scoop tablespoon sized


  • Melt butter in saucepan over medium-low heat. Watch the butter to ensure it does not burn. Reduce the heat to low and add the powdered sugar and coconut. Mix well and remove from heat after a minute or two.
  • Allow the coconut mixture to cool slightly if needed. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out tablespoon sized balls of the mixture and place on your Heirloom Cookie Sheet.
  • Drizzle the melted chocolate over all of the coconut mini-mounds. Chill in the refrigerator until firm, or for at least 2 hours.
