Chocolate Coconut Balls – 4 Ingredient No Bake Dessert
I love this time of year, I call it baking season. Now that the weather is cooler, I have the oven going more often. However, I do still prefer easy, no-bake desserts like these Chocolate Coconut Balls. This recipe has been added to my easy coconut balls page.
Two years ago I threw together a few ingredients and hoped for the best – that recipe was for Coconut Balls.
I was curious on how they would taste with chocolate, so today I remade them and added a milk chocolate drizzle.
My son is currently eating them by the handful, which I should probably stop since they’re basically pure sugar.
But yet, this is the time of year where pure sugar is okay – right? Or is that just me?
It starts out with two ingredients: powdered sugar and coconut oil. The result is a frosting consistency, so you know darn well that I’ll be experimenting with that for future recipes.
After the shredded coconut is added, you could just stop there. I did that two years ago for the original 3 Ingredient Coconut Balls. However, I wanted to take it one step further.
I cheated a little bit when it came to the milk chocolate. I went to Bulk Barn and bought Merckens chocolate wafers (similar to Candy Melts).
I did that because they’re easier to melt (and because they were on sale – let’s be honest, price wins every time).

Hi I have a question sorry first of all something is wrong with my typing it goes to small when the settings are and spear to big in my settings so sorry for the small words hope you will be able to read it I just wanted to say they sound so yummy good anyway I want to know where do you get coconut oil that you have to melt I never saw that before I don,t think our shop rite all that sorta thing so can you tell where you can buy it and I wanted to add my aunt used to make coconut balls but would you belevie her recipe has mash potatoes to hold them together did you ever hear of that?
You can get coconut oil at any grocery store. I find the best deal is usually Costco, but if you don’t have one any grocery store should do. It’s usually near the olive oil. I have never heard of mashed potatoes in coconut balls before. I wonder if it’s good? lol
I used to make these only make a thumb print and filled that up with the chocolate.
Yummm! That sounds amazing!
