No-Bake Cookies: Snowballs

* 2 tsp. butter
* 3 tbsp. water
* 1 tsp. vanilla
* 1/2 cup powdered milk
* 2 cups confectioners (powdered) sugar
* 3 cups coconut
* 6 oz. chocolate chips – optional

Melt butter in 2 quart saucepan, or in a medium size glass bowl in the microwave (10-15 seconds at a time, stirring between cycles). Remove from heat and add water and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together icing sugar and powdered milk. Add to butter mixture a 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in coconut. Drop teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper and let stand until firm – about 10 minutes.

Optional – melt chocolate and swirl 1 tsp over each drop then chill to keep fresh.

Makes three dozen small, 2 dozen large drops.
