1/4 tsp salt

1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. flaked coconut
3/4 c. brown sugar, firmly packed

Blend ingredients together and cut in butter.

1/2 c. sweetened condensed milk
1 c. (6 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate pieces
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. almond or vanilla extract.

Cream butter, frosting mix and almond or vanilla extract. Add chopped fruit, flour, salt. Mix well.

Shape into 1-inch balls. Place 1 1/2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet; flatten. Place 1 teaspoon fudge frosting on each. Top with pecan half.

Bake at 300 for 18 to 20 minutes until lightly browned.
