 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      oz            cream cheese. softened
      1/2  cup           butter or margarine, softened
    4      cups          powdered sugar
    1 1/2  tsp           vanilla
    2      cups          flaked coconut (small flakes)
 
  Beat cream cheese and butter in large mixer bowl until smooth.  Gradually
  blend in powdered sugar and vanilla. Blend in coconut.  If necessary, chill
  about an hour our until firm enough to handle. Form into desired shapes.
  Place on wax paper-covered tray or cookie sheet. Cover loosely and chill 3
  to 4 hours or overnight.  They should feel dry to the touch before coating
  with semisweet or bitter sweet chocolate. (I like Ghirardhelli’s).
 
  I'm not sure if these are just like Mound’s because I only make them at
  X-Mas and haven't tasted them for a year.  If my memory doesn't deceive
  they're quite similar and very good.
  [Note: Don't try coating these in milk chocolate. Tastes weird.]
  Enjoy.
