I love coconut, John does not. With the holidays here, I decided to make a batch of these so I could have a few and share the rest. I loved how moist these were. They would also be good with an almond on top. If you like coconut, you are sure to love these.
Recipe from: How Sweet It Is
makes about 24 teaspoon-sized truffles
3 cups sweetened, shredded coconut, chopped fine
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1 1/2-2 cups milk chocolate chips, melted
In a large bowl, combined coconut and sugar and mix to combine. Add
in milk and coconut oil, mix constantly until a gooey coconut filling
results. Scoop using smallest cookie scoop or make teaspoon-sized (or a little larger) balls and place on a
parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze for 15 minutes, then remove from
freeze and roll again between your palms to smooth any coconut edges.
Freeze for 10-15 minutes more. While freezing, melt chocolate chips in a
double boiled or microwave. Remove coconut balls from freezer and
Refrigerate until ready to serve – at least 15 minutes.
