Special thanks to our member Dia Plg for sending us this super easy and quick recipe!
- In a bowl, add the ground coconut and condensed milk. Stir by hand until completely combined. I suggest you wear disposable gloves because the mixture is quite sticky.
- Shape the mixture into equal sized balls.
- Transfer to a grease proof paper or to a silicon ice tray and refrigerate for 15 minutes, until chilled and firm.
- While your mixture is chilling, melt the chocolate in a bain marie (water bath). You can also melt it in a microwave for 1 minute, set at 700 watts.
- When it has melted stir with a spatula until smooth.
- Use a wooden skewer to pierce each little ball of coconut mixture and dip into the melted chocolate to coat.
- Transfer to grease proof paper and refrigerate again to chill, until the chocolate sets.
- At this point you can add your favorite nuts. Either crushed or whole, simply press them into the chocolates. We added pistachio nuts.
- If you don’t want to shape them by hand, you can press them in to silicon ice trays that come in various shapes. Refrigerate until completely chilled. Dip them in the melted chocolate and transfer to a wire rack until the chocolate drains, cools and sets.
