  • 1 ounce milk chocolate, melted

  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans

If you like coconut, you’ll love these no-bake, no-fuss sweets. They are cute as can be and make a satisfying after-school snack to keep in the fridge.

  1. In a large bowl, combine the coconut, confectioners’ sugar and butter. Form into 1-in. balls.
  2. Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make an indentation in the center of each ball. Fill with chocolate. Sprinkle with pecans. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Chill until chocolate is firm. Store in the refrigerator.
