¼ cup unsweetened baking cocoa
2 tablespoons unsalted butter SAVE $
½ cup chopped pistachio nuts
1/3 cup chopped sliced almonds
1/3 cup shredded coconut

1 Grease large shallow pan or platter with butter. In 4-quart nonstick heavy saucepan, heat condensed milk, cocoa and 2 tablespoons butter to boiling, stirring constantly with wooden spoon.

Pour mixture into shallow pan; cool completely (refrigerate to firm up faster).

3 Store tightly covered at room temperature up to 2 days or in the refrigerator up to 1 week.
To make rolling the balls easier, chill the truffle mixture in the refrigerator until firm before scooping and rolling it.
