Step 4:

Cover tightly; refrigerate 1 hour or until firm enough to handle.

Step 5:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in remaining coconut.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.  Remove from the oven; immediately press a chocolate kiss on tope of each cookie.  Cool 1 minute and then transfer to a rack to cool completely.

Yum Yum.

Yum Yum.
