     1/4 lb Butter (or margarine)
       3 c  Coconut
            -(one standard package)
       2 c  Powdered sugar
       2 oz Chocolate (unsweetened),
            -melted (2 squares)
  
   Melt butter in a sauce pan.  Remove from heat.  Add powdered sugar and
   coconut.  Mix well.

   each and place on cookie sheet.  Fill centers with melted chocolate.  Chill

   NOTES:
   
   *  Super-sweet, super-rich holiday cookies -- This is an easy recipe that
   can knock your socks off for flavor and sweetness. In other words, it will
   make your teeth fall out.
   
   *  We use sweetened coconut and also use semi-sweet chocolate.  This is why
   they make your teeth fall out.
   
   *  I tried an approach of melting the stick of margarine using the
   microwave on full for 48 seconds. While it was melting, I measured and
   mixed up the dry ingredients. I then poured half the liquid over the
   premixed coconut-sugar mixture; mixed some and poured in the remainder.
   This worked well for me, but my wife insists that the listed method is
   easier.
   
   *  Your clean thumb is the best way to make the indentations.
   
   *  Be sure to keep them in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
   
   : Difficulty:  easy.
