"these are FAR too sweet.. ick.. i have betty crocker recipe cards from the 1950's-1970's (gift from my late gramma) and there is a coconut candy recipe like this but the secret ingredient is mashed potatoes! sounds crazy but it makes the candies /bars come out tasting amazing and JUST like a certain coconut candy bar owned by the Hershey company ;).. its 3/4 cup plain mashed potatoes per batch mix that with 4 c shredded coconut and 2 cups powdered sugar and a teaspoon of almond extract and form into balls.. freeze then dip in chocolate. they turn out perfectly moist and yummy and lack that icky lingering sweetness you get from sweetened condensed milk! hope this helps! and for the lazy or time lacking types there are 2 solutions.. instead of balls.. make some cups out of chocolate ( by painting the inside of cupcake liners with melted chocolate letting them cool and then pulling the paper liner off) and pop the coconut mixture into the cups by spoonfuls... ORRR you can line a cake pan with wax paper, coat the bottom of the pan with a light layer of melted chocolate and then plop/press the entire batch of coconut mix on top then top with more melted chocolate chill and then serve it by cutting it into slices!."
