1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted
2/3 cup flaked coconut
3 tbsp cocoa
1 tsp vanilla
Finely chopped nuts (walnuts or pistachios)
In a medium sized bowl, combine the butter, sugar, coconut, cocoa and vanilla. Blend well and refrigerate until easily handled. Shape into small balls. Roll half in coconut and half in chopped nuts. If serving at a later time, freeze in plastic bags and thaw slightly when needed.
