Chocolate Coconut Balls

chocolatecoconutballsMy mama loves coconut balls. I wanted to learn how to make them for her, so I found this recipe!


  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 8 ounces sweetened shredded coconut
  • Melted Chocolate for dipping (milk or white chocolate)
  • 1 cup toasted almonds (optional)


  1. In a bowl mix together the (optional) nuts, condensed milk, almond extract and coconut. Using your fingers, press the mixture into balls about 3/4-inch round. Place onto sheet trays and let rest at room temperature for 4 hours or in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  2. After the balls have set up, melt the chocolate. Dip into the chocolate to coat evenly and lightly. Place onto wax paper to dry.
