  1. In large heavy saucepan, melt chocolate and butter over very low heat. Add sweetened condensed milk; stir to blend. Remove from heat; set aside. In small saucepan, combine granulated sugar, water and corn syrup and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cook, without stirring, until mixture reaches 250°F (120°C) on candy thermometer or until a small amount of syrup, when dropped into very cold water, forms a firm ball which does not flatten when removed from water. Remove from heat and stir into chocolate mixture. Stir in vanilla, coconut and nuts, mixing well. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until firm enough to handle. Shape into 1-inch balls; roll in powdered sugar. Store tightly covered in cool, dry place.
