This is alittle pass halloween but for good reason, i always make coconut cookies during the holidays for the whole “snow looking” effect, I love mound bars but the chocolate always gives me a stomach ache so i wanted to recreate my own and these are delishh ! plus there so easy to make.. i take 2-3 with me to school and eat them as a snack and they always hold me over til lunch..
i have dunked them completely in chocolate but for the holidays i wanted to keep them partially covered..
Coconut Mound Balls
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
4 tbs coconut oil
2 tbs maple syrup
2 tbs almond milk (water will work too)
1.5 tsp vanilla
2 tbs chocolate chips
In a bowl mix everything but the chocolate together, very well.. i use a work to get the coconut oil all mushed and mixed well. Roll in balls and put in freezer for half hour. Melt the chocolate and dip the bottoms then place back in the freezer til hardened. This recipe makes 12-16 depending on the size you make!
*if you want to cover the whole ball use 4tbs of chocolate and melt that then roll ball in it and use a fork or slotted spoon to take it out and get the excess chocolate off!
My nieces cant get enough of these they keep saying “i want more snow balls” I think for christmas i may dip it in chocolate partially then put christmas sprinkles on it hmm!
