1/2cupbutter or margarine
2cupspowdered icing sugar
3cupsshredded coconutI used sweetened, but unsweetened would work fine
1/2tspvanilla or mint extract
green food coloring
3/4cupwhite chocolate chips
1tspbutter or margarine
In a large pot, melt butter. Remove from heat.
Stir in icing sugar and milk. Stir in coconut, vanilla/mint and enough food coloring to make the mixture green.
Shape into small balls, and using the tips of your fingers gently squeeze one side of the ball until it takes on a cone shape. It might take a few tries to get them how you like them, but if the mixture gets too cool to work with you can always heat on low a minute or 2.
If you see any later you want to reshape, they are easily reshaped at room temperature.
Put uncovered on a baking sheet to set either in the fridge for 2-3 hours or the freezer for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
In a small pot, melt chocolate, 1 tsp butter and 1 tbsp milk over low heat, stirring, until smooth. Dip the tops of the cookies in the white chocolate to look like snow. Add mini M&M's if desired.
Set in the fridge or freezer to set before storing in an air tight container.
