Coconut Balls – Only 3 Ingredients
I love coconut flavored anything: candles, desserts, coffee. It’s all delicious in my mind. So as I was doing some baking for the Christmas Holidays I wanted to make easy coconut balls. I tossed a few random ingredients together and made these 3 Ingredient Coconut Balls.
This weekend has been a baking weekend. I have been getting some goodies organized and frozen from the holiday season and freezing them. Whipped shortbread, turtles, cookies and cream fudge and two new additions to my blog: Biscotti Munch and Coconut Balls. If the above photo doesn’t prove it to you, they turned out beautifully. Although I will admit they look a little boring (I was going to dip them in chocolate but opted against it since I ran out of chocolate) but what they lack in appearance, they make up in flavor.
Making the coconut balls were relatively easy. I am pretty proud of myself for remembering to measure what I did, although as you can tell from the photo my cups are not level.
First I melted the coconut oil (I use this one).
Then I added the powdered sugar. I have to admit, at this point I was about ready to start eating it. It smelled so good (I love coconut oil for the very reason).
After a quick addition of sweetened coconut flakes (I used medium) and a few stirs, I was ready to shape the coconut mixture into balls.
That’s it! They’re super simple to make.
I plan on going forward with my original plan and dipping them in dark chocolate (or mint chocolate) when I create them again in a few weeks. I’ll let you know how they turn out, although I am pretty sure they’ll be awesome. It’s not often chocolate actually ruins a dessert.
Anyway, I’ll quit my blabbering as I actually have a few more items to bake and shoot for the blog (this upcoming Biscotti Munch is going to be amazing). Enjoy the recipe friends!
