Every Christmas my family and I get together and make candy for gifts. This is by far my favorite candy and the most requested for gifts every year! It takes some time, I wish I could tell you how long, but we make them in HUGE batches and it takes us all evening.. Plus we goof off and have tons of fun while doing it!!

  • 1 can(s)

How to Make Coconut Balls


  1. Note: I get wax from the canning section in the grocery store, usually they're 4 blocks of wax per box, just use one block.
  2. Heat chocolate chips and wax in double boiler over medium heat. Stirring occasionally.
  3. Mix all other ingredients until well blended.
  4. Lay out a bunch of parchment paper and start making balls the size of cherry cordials. Place them on the parchment paper as you go.
  5. Dip the balls in the chocolate. We use a tooth pick stuck in the top and swirl them in the chocolate. (Takes some practice, but easy enough)
  6. Once all of the balls are dipped take a spoon and cover the holes from where the tooth pick was. I just drizzle and make swirls.
  7. Let the coconut balls stay out over night to dry. Then put them in sealed containers or ziploc bags. Have fun!!
