Orange Coconut Creams

Before I talk about this recipe, remember that today is Pi(e) day!  Make sure to have some sort of pie to celebrate. :)
Oh, what a delights these little nuggets are!  They taste just like those chocolates you get in a little box!  So creamy, bursting with so much flavor, and all of this covered, of course, in chocolate!  Yes, make these as soon as you can! :)  They're pretty easy too.  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
-1/2 cup unsalted butter
-2 lbs powdered sugar
-1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
-1 1/2 tsp orange extract
-2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
-8 oz sweet German chocolate, chopped (found in 1 oz blocks in your grocer's baking aisle)
-2 Tbs vegetable shortening
Directions:
Mix the milk and butter in small saucepan.  Cook over low heat until butter is melted, stirring occasionally.  Remove from heat.
Pour the sugar in a large bowl.  Add the milk mixture.  Stir with a wooden spoon until well mixed.  Add the coconut and orange extract.  Mix well.
Line 2-3 cookie sheets with parchments paper.
Scoop the coconut mixture with a teaspoon onto the prepared sheets.  Place in the fridge for about 1 hour to harden a little (the mixture is quite soft).
Melt the chocolate chips, German chocolate and shortening.  Mix well.
Take the coconut mixture out of the fridge.  Roll each spoonful into balls.  
Replace the parchment paper on the cookie sheets.
Dip each coconut ball into the melted chocolate mixture and place on prepared sheets.
Place back in the fridge until hardened.  
Enjoy to your heart's desire! :)
