  • In a medium bowl, combine powdered sugar, and milk powder. Stir into the butter mixture until combined. Add coconut, stirring until coated.

  • Drop by small teaspoonfuls onto a wax-paper-lined baking sheet. Chill in refrigerator for 15 minutes. Top with candied cherries, if you like.

  • Melt chocolate and shortening over very low heat. Cool slightly. Drizzle over candies. Chill in refrigerator for 20 minutes more or until firm. Makes about 36 servings.

Tips

To make drizzling with chocolate easier, put the melted chocolate mixture in a plastic bag. Snip off a corner of the bag and drizzle chocolate through the hole. For a lighter chocolate coating, melt only half of the chocolate chips and shortening.
