Chocolate Coconut Balls

For this recipe you'll need: shredded coconut, condensed milk, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, dark chocolate, butter, and sea salt.


Blend the coconut in a food processor until it becomes more fine. About 10 seconds. Add the coconut and remaining filling ingredients to a large bowl and mix well. Scoop the coconut filling into 1-inch balls and place them on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Freeze the coconut balls for 15-20 minutes

Making the Coconut Filling

Microwave the chocolate and shortening in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments until smooth. Stir after each 30 second increment

Melting the Chocolate

Use a fork and dip each coconut ball into the chocolate, fully coat it on all sides. Lift it out with the fork and let the excess chocolate drain off. Place on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Top each chocolate coconut ball with flaky sea salt. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving
