What Will You Need to Make These Tasty Chocolate Coconut Balls?

Ingredients – Coconut Chocolate Balls

What is so great about this recipe is that it is really quick and simple to make. Here is what you’ll need to prepare these bounty balls:

Desiccated Coconut – For this recipe you’ll want to use desiccated coconut. This is going to be the heart of your chocolate coconut balls. The difference between desiccated coconut and shredded coconut is that desiccated coconut is finely shredded coconut that is not sweetened. But if you do not have this, regular shredded coconut will work just as well.

Sweetened Condensed Milk – This will add sweet and caramelized flavor to your coconut bites. It will also make the shredded coconut stick together better so you can shape it into balls.

Dark Chocolate – I like using dark chocolate in this recipe but you can actually personalize this to use your favorite chocolate bar. Milk chocolate or even white chocolate can be great. No matter which one you choose, make sure to use high quality chocolate to make the best unforgettable coconut bites you can.

Best Tips for Making Perfect Chocolate Covered Coconut Balls

There are a few tips that can help you make perfect bounty balls. Here are two of them:

Dipping Tools

While you can use a regular fork to dip your coconut balls, there are dipping tools that can make this even easier. I like this set of dipping tools by Wilton.

Cooling Rack

A cooling rack is a device that allows air to circulate completely around whatever is on it. It’s also good when you want to chill chocolate-dipped confections. By placing the dipped coconut balls on the cooling rack, you can perfectly coat the balls and allow the remaining chocolate to drain out.

Mini White Paper Baking Cups

How to Make These Chocolate Coconut Balls Healthier?

How to Make These Chocolate Coconut Balls Healthier?

You can easily turn these rich bounty balls into healthy low in sugar treats. Here is what you’ll need:

Cream of coconut – This is a great substitute for sweetened condensed milk, leaving you with a hint of the tropical flavor of coconuts. Its thick consistency closely resembles sweetened condensed milk. If you use cream of coconut instead, this recipe will actually turn into a dairy-free recipe, since the sweetened condensed milk is the only dairy ingredient in this recipe. To substitute use a cup for cup.

Dark low in sugar chocolate – Use real good chocolate that is low in sugar. I usually use 70%-80% chocolate bars like these.

Maple Syrup and vanilla extract – These are the natural sweeteners that I like to use to add a sweet taste to my healthy coconut bites. Use one teaspoon of vanilla extract and 3 tablespoons of high-quality maple syrup like this one here.
