  • 4 cups desiccated coconut
  • 1 tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 250g dark chocolate melts


  1. Mix together coconut and condensed milk until well combined. It will be very sticky!
  2. Roll heaped teaspoons of the coconut mixture into balls, and place on a tray lined with nonstick baking paper. 
  3. Place tray in freezer for around 30 minutes to set and firm up. 
  4. Place chocolate in microwave, stirring between 30 second bursts, until melted.  
  5. Use two forks to dip the frozen coconut balls in the melted chocolate, placing back on tray to set. Once all are done, you can drizzle with the remaining chocolate. Store in an airtight container for up to a week.
