Recipe: Coco-Candies

This is a fairly simple candy to do the next time you get a craving! The only perishable item is the butter - if you substitute butter-flavored crisco or something non-perishable, let us know how it turns out.

1 pound box 10x sugar (powdered sugar)
1 cup flaked coconut
1/3 cup soft butter (or lactose-equivalent)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup light corn syrup
cinnamon and sugar

Mix all ingredients (except cinnamon and sugar) together with your clean hands until it clings together, then refrigerate covered for 2 hours. Take out and allow to soften for a few minutes. With clean hands, roll into small balls. Mix together equal parts of cinnamon and sugar. Roll the balls in this mixture. Store in refrigerator when not eating!
