Rock Monsters

Rock Monsters

These Rock Monsters hide in chocolate-covered mini fillo shells.



  1. Melt candy in either a microwave or double boiler per package directions.
  2. Paint shells with melted candy using a small pastry brush and place on a rack to dry, bottom side up.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine coconut, confectioners sugar, almonds, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla and food coloring until mixture is an even green color. Form mixture into 15 (1 1/2-inch) balls.
  4. When shells are dry, place 1 ball into each of 15 shells. Gently push candy eyes into each ball. Place second shell on top at an angle as if it is hinged to the bottom shell.

Yield: 15 Rock Monsters

* Candy melts and eyes can be purchased at most craft and cake supply stores.
