Coconut Balls | Peri's Place For Recipes

Coconut Balls


  • 2 pounds powdered sugar
  • 1 cup butter (very soft, not melted)
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 cups chopped nuts
  • 1 large package coconut
  • Dipping chocolate (I like to use Wilton's Candy Melts and I can usually cover the entire batch with 2 bags of chocolate.)


  1. Mix all ingredients except chocolate.
  2. Roll into small balls, place on wax paper. Let dry uncovered for at least 8 hours, over night is preferrable.
  3. Melt chocolate & wax over a double boiler until melted, stir well. Turn temp down on choc and 4-5 at a time, dip coconut balls with 2 forks, tapping as much chocolate off as possible.
  4. Place back onto wax paper, let sit until chocolate is set.
  5. Store in air tight container so chocolate does not soften.

Good to Know

You can use any type of dipping chocolate you want. You get a beautiful glossy coconut ball when you use this method though.
