2 lbs. confectioners' sugar
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup margarine, softened
10 oz. flaked coconut
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
12 oz. chocolate chips
2 Tbsp. parafin wax
additional coconut for topping

Melt butter in a large saucepan and add milk. Stir in the sugar and salt. Add coconut and chopped pecans; chill for 1 hour. Remove from refrigerator and form dough into small balls. Insert a toothpick into each ball and freeze for 1 hour. Melt chocolate chips and parafin in a double boiler. Dip each ball in melted chocolate mixture and set on waxed paper or a nonstick silicone mat. Wait 30 seconds and sprinkle additional coconut on balls. Remove toothpick and let balls cool.
