1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add sweetened condensed milk and cocoa powder and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and begins to form a cohesive ball, about 20 minutes.
2. Remove from heat and let cool, about 45 minutes. Place desired coating in a shallow bowl. Using greased hands, pinch off about 1 tablespoon of mixture and roll into balls. Roll in desired coatings and store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
