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).
