Hollllllly cow these are amazing! I have to say, these are better than the store bought version. Please give these a try, they are so easy and so yummy. This makes a large batch, about 40-45 of these so it's great for a party dessert or you can cut the recipe in half to make a smaller batch.
- 14oz sweetened condensed milk
- 14oz unsweetened coconut flakes
- pinch of salt
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- raw, unsalted almonds (I prefer them lightly toasted)
Combine sweetened condensed milk, coconut flakes and a pinch of salt in a large bowl and stir to combine. Put in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or line with parchment paper. Remove bowl from the freezer and roll portions of the coconut into balls or ovals (whatever your preference). I did mine in about 1 1/2 tbsp sized portions. Wetting your hands with water a bit makes the coconut a little easier to roll. Place on the lined baking sheet and put in the freezer for about 20 minutes.
Place chocolate chips in a double boiler and melt over low heat, stirring often. Remove rolled coconut balls from freezer, roll in melted chocolate with a fork and place back on baking sheet. Top with an almond and place back in the freezer for 25-30 minutes or until the chocolate has completely hardened. Store in the freezer or refrigerator in an airtight container.
