Coconut Ice Truffles

3 cups icing sugar
4 cups sweetened coconut
1 can (300ml) sweetened condensed milk
1 bag (11 ounces) semi sweet chocolate chips
1-3 tablespoons vegetable shortening

1. Line a 9x9" pan with parchment paper. In a large bowl mix together icing sugar, sweetened coconut, and sweetened condensed milk. Press mixture into prepared pan. Cover and chill until firm, about 3 hours.
2. Once the coconut ice is firm, remove from pan and slice into pieces. I sliced mine into 8 rows and each row into 7 pieces. Place pieces onto a tray lined with wax paper or a silicone mat. Freeze until firm.
3. In a microwavable safe bowl microwave chocolate chips on high heat, stirring every 30 seconds, until completely melted. Add vegetable shortening and melt in until desired consistency is met.
4. Dip coconut ice pieces into the chocolate and place back onto wax paper. Before chocolate sets completely, sprinkle some coconut on top if desired. Let chocolate set then serve & enjoy!

Makes approximately 56 pieces.

These are the perfect addition to your holiday treat selection!
