25 Days Christmas Countdown
Chocolate Coconut Balls
This is a recipe I have used for the past several years. They are an added feature to a cookie platter that most people will enjoy.
2/3 c corn syrup
2 1/3 c flakey coconut (add enough so you have some structure and can make a ball shape)
1/4 melting chocolate
1/2 tsp coconut oil
In a medium sauce pan over low heat warm corn syrup to a thin consistency. Remove from heat, add coconut and stir until it is stiff and you can shape into balls. It is safe to add more coconut if you need more.
Form your balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Chill in a refrigerator long enough to make cold.
Melt your chocolate with your coconut oil on low heat in the microwave stirring frequently . Be sure to not burn your chocolate.
Remove your coconut balls from the refrigerator and dip into your melted chocolate and dry on wax paper.
Disclaimer, I was talking with my friend about these last night and we will be working on making these healthy. When I have pulled a healthier version together I will post it later.
