  • Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.
  • Roll coconut dough into 1" - 1 1/2" balls and place onto waxed paper.
  • Melt chocolate in microwave safe dish for 30 seconds. Stir. Add 10 seconds if necessary and stir until smooth.
  • Dip coconut balls into chocolate, letting excess drain off and place back onto waxed paper.
  • Let harden.
  • For Almond Bites: place an almond in the center of the coconut ball and form dough around almond. Sprinke with chopped almonds after dipping in chocolate for a garnish.


You can use your favorite melting chocolate to create your chocolate coconut balls. I bounce back and forth between the Ghirardhelli melting chocoalte wafers that you can buy at Sam's Club during the holiday season and the ones linked, for easy online ordering.
