Martha Washington Candies



1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted

1 lb powdered sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 (14 oz) package sweetened shredded coconut

1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk

1 (10 oz) jar maraschino cherries, drained and chopped

3 cups pecans, finely chopped

(16 oz) chocolate coating


Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Set aside.

In a large bowl, stir together butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, coconut, condensed milk, and pecans. Fold in chopped cherries. Refrigerate mixture for at least two hours.

Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out and roll into balls. Place onto prepared baking sheet. Chill until firm, about 20 minutes.

Once firm, add chocolate coating to a microwave-safe bowl and melt according to package instructions. Dip balls in melted chocolate, shaking off excess. Place back on wax paper and allow to sit until firm. Enjoy!
