This simple holiday candy is a favorite of my family. It taste just like a Mounds candybar, the hardest part is getting the sticky off of your fingers when you are rolling the balls! Happy Holidays!

How To Make mounds balls

  • 1
    Empty coconut into a large bowl, add Karo syrup (enough to make it gooey, it will snap crackle and pop like rice krispies when you have enough) It needs to be able to be shaped into a ball and hold its shape. If you get too much syrup..just add a little more coconut, the ingredients are not an exact science. Mix well with a spoon.GREASE HANDS WELL WITH BUTTER, FREQUENTLY...YOU WILL HAVE TO WASH THE COCONUT OFF OF YOUR HANDS BEFORE EACH BUTTERING.

    Roll into balls one at a time and drop each ball as its rolled into the following: 1 bag of melted semi sweet chocolate chips with 1/3 of a bar of gulfwax melted together. I do this in a double boiler. As you roll each ball, drop it into the melted chocolate for coating,lay each ball onto wax paper that covers a cookie sheet. When the sheet is full, pop into the freezer for a few minutes to set the chocolate. When the chocolate is hardened enough to remove from the wax paper, do so and store the balls in a cookie tin. Layering with wax paper between each row.
