These sweet treats have a coconut-and-chocolate flavored center surrounded by flaky biscuit and topped with melted chocolate pieces.


  • 2 cups packaged biscuit mix
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 15 milk chocolate football candies, unwrapped
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/3 cup milk chocolate pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon shortening


  1. In a large bowl stir together biscuit mix and the 1/2 cup coconut. Add milk all at once. Using a fork, stir just until moistened and forms a soft dough.
  2. Turn dough out onto a surface lightly floured with biscuit mix. Knead dough by folding and gently pressing dough for 10 strokes or just until dough holds together. Pat or roll dough to a 15x9-inch rectangle.
  3. Cut into 15 (3x3-inch) squares. In a small bowl, combine the 3/4 cup coconut and sweetened condensed milk. Spoon 1 rounded teaspoonful of coconut mixture onto center of each square; top with chocolate football. Fold dough in half to form a triangle. Place triangles on a large baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray. Press edges together with a fork to seal. Brush turnovers with melted butter.
  4. Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, place chocolate pieces and shortening in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on 50 percent power (medium) for 1 to 2 minutes or until chocolate is melted and smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. Cool slightly. Transfer chocolate to a resealable plastic bag. Cut off tip of one corner of bag. Drizzle melted chocolate over turnovers. Makes 15 turnovers.


  • If you cant find chocolate football candies, sprinkle chocolate pieces atop the coconut mixture in place of the football candy.
