In a large mixing bowl, combine ½ cup butter and a 16 ounce box of confectioner's sugar. Stir until well blended. Mix in ½ of a 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk, 3 ½ ounces of flaked coconut, and 1 cup of finely chopped pecans. Form mixture into 1-inch balls and place on a shallow baking pan that is lined with waxed paper. Chill balls for ½ to 1 hour in the refrigerator. In a double boiler, melt 12 ounces of semisweet chocolate chips and 1 ounce of paraffin (if desired). Use a toothpick to dip balls in melted chocolate mixture. Place on a large pan or platter that is covered with waxed paper. Chill, until ready to serve or store. When ready to serve, place the chilled bonbons on a nice serving plate, removing any excess chocolate that has stuck to the bottom. These can be made ahead and frozen. Just thaw them for a couple of hours before serving them. You may leave theses bonbons at room temperature or keep them refrigerated. They keep well when stored in a covered container. Enjoy!!!
