Winter Candies with Coconut Buttercream Filling

We still have plenty of winter left to enjoy making these cute winter candies. They have the most delicious coconut buttercream filling too! You can make these any color you like! They would also be fun to create for Valentine’s Day with hearts in place of the snowmen.

Time: 2 hours | Yields: 12 Candies



  1. A Wilton Candy Melt Pot is recommended to heat candy melts. If you do not own a candy melt pot simply microwave candy melts at 50% for 30 seconds. Stir. Heat at 50% for 30 seconds. Stir. Heat at 50% in 15-second intervals and stir until completely smooth. Do not over heat.Winter Candies
  2. Add blue coloring paste to white candy melts until desired blue is achieved. If candy melts become too thick simply add a touch of coconut oil to thin.Winter Candies
  3. Using a spoon, slowly pour candy melts into each rectangular cavity. Rotate the mold from side to side, ensuring all sides are coated. It’s best to focus on one rectangle at a time. Dip out any excess candy melt. The goal is to create a thin layer. Gently tap mold onto countertop to remove air bubbles.Winter Candies
  4. Place mold in freezer for 30 minutes.
  5. In medium mixing bowl, cream butter with electric mixer. Slowly add powdered sugar while mixing on slow speed. Add vanilla extract and milk until combined. Finally, add shredded coconut. Set aside.Coconut Buttercream Filling

  7. Add coconut buttercream filling into each mold. Leave enough room for the filling to be covered by the other half of the candy shell.Winter Candies
  8. Pour a thin layer of blue candy melts on top of each cavity, creating an enclosure. Wipe any excess from the side.Winter Candies
  9. Place mold in freezer for 30 minutes.

    These molds are adorable and I loved how you did the snowmen faces- too cute! I love coconut so thanks for the great buttercream recipe. I can see using the filling recipe for Bon bonds too.

    Those are absolutely adorable! I am not sure I have the patience to do them. Maybe the kids would want to help. They sound delicious

    My favorite Christmas color motifs are icy blue or silver and candy cane red-and-white stripe. I’m glad you chose one! It’s really cool that you included coconut in your dessert recipe. I really love it! This would be the perfect thing to make on the day when it first snows!
