Chocolate Coconut Cremes

{ Prep time: about 20 mins, but give yourself plenty of time for refrigerating! / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 3 dozen }

2 1/2 cups flaked coconut
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup evaporated milk
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup chopped maraschino cherries

1. Place coconut in a food processor; process until finely chopped. In microwave, melt chocolate chips and milk (be careful not to burn!). Remove from heat, then stir in powdered sugar, 1 1/4 cups coconut, pecans and cherries. (Save remaining coconut for coating.) Cover and refrigerate for several hours, or until firm.
2. Shape chocolate mixture into 1" balls; roll in reserved coconut. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate for 2 hours, or until firm. Store in airtight container in the fridge.
