Prep Time: 15 minutes | Chilling Time: 40-50 minutes | Total Time: Approximately 1 hour

Table of Contents

 INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup shredded coconut (plus extra for coating)
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  • 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream

DIRECTIONS

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the shredded coconut, sweetened condensed milk, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined.

  • Roll the mixture into small bite-sized balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate the coconut balls for about 20-30 minutes to firm them up.

  • While the coconut balls are chilling, prepare the chocolate coating. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chopped semi-sweet chocolate and heavy cream.

  • Microwave in 20-second intervals, stirring each time until the chocolate is fully melted and smooth. Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate using a double boiler.

  • Once the coconut balls have chilled and firmed up, dip each ball into the melted chocolate, making sure it’s evenly coated. You can use a fork or a dipping tool for this.

  • Place the chocolate-coated truffles back on the parchment-lined baking sheet.

  • While the chocolate coating is still wet, sprinkle some shredded coconut on top of each truffle for a lovely garnish.

  • Refrigerate the truffles for an additional 15-20 minutes to set the chocolate coating.

  • Once the Coconut and Chocolate Truffles are set, transfer them to an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator.

  • Enjoy these delightful Coconut and Chocolate Truffles Recipe as a sweet treat or as a homemade gift for friends and family. They’re the perfect blend of coconut and chocolate goodness!
