  • 3 In small microwavable bowl, microwave remaining 4 oz white chocolate uncovered on High 45 to 60 seconds, stirring once, until softened and chocolate can be stirred smooth. Place coconut in resealable food-storage plastic bag or between sheets of waxed paper; crush slightly with rolling pin. In shallow dish, place coconut. Dip each truffle in melted white chocolate; coat immediately with coconut. Return to cookie sheet; refrigerate 10 minutes or until firm. Store covered in refrigerator.
