Total Time 2 hours
Servings 40 balls
- 1 cup Graham cracker crumbs
- 1 cup sweetened grated coconut
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1/2 cup + 2 tbsps melted butter
- 2 tbsps cocoa powder
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 2 tbsps cream
- 2 tbsps vanilla pudding mix
- 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
- 1/2 cup butter
In a large bowl add the graham cracker crumbs, coconut, pecans, melted butter, and cocoa powder. Stir and set aside.
In a smaller bowl, mix up the filling ingredients.
Take the filling, roll in a ball that's about 3/4". Sprinkle the chocolate coconut mixture on top and roll until the filling is surrounded.
Once all the balls are rolled out and placed on parchment paper, stick them in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, place a glass bowl over a boiling pot of water and add the semisweet chocolate and butter. Stir until smooth and glossy.
Remove the balls from the freezer and roll in the melted chocolate. Place back on the parchment paper and top with any additional coconut mixture.
Let stand a few hours until chocolate is set, or toss them in the freezer to speed it up.
