So easy and so delicious. I made these for Easter as they remind me of coconut eggs. I made the balls a bit smaller since they are so rich.
I used unrefined pressed/virgin coconut oil for the shortening adding a little extra coconut taste. This recipe is so simple and delicious!
I love the mounds candy so I am sure that this will be fantastic. I will though be making a change to your recipe. The only nuts I can eat are cashews, walnuts and peanuts because of allergies to any other nuts so If I use nuts they will be those 3. These will make great Channukkah and Christmas Presents for not a lot of money
These were absolutely amazing! so easy to make even though I didn't measure everything just perfect. cant really mess these up. I rubbed coconut oil in my hand when I rolled them. I used fresh grated coconut partially dried in the oven. I will definitely make again. Unfortunately my daughter liked them haha. Thanks
Wonderful, Delicious! And, easy to make! My family loves them. The filling takes a little muscle to mix thoroughly. As some suggested, I put the coconut into the food processor to make the pieces a little smaller.
These are always a hit at parties and for gift giving. I suspect those people who said the mixture was "too runny" to make a ball, used the entire can of sweetened condensed milk instead of the 1/2 cup that is called for. (I did this the first time I made them) If you make it exactly the way the recipe states, and chill as recommended, they turn out perfect. If you are having a hard time rolling the mixture into balls, perhaps use a little Pam spray on your hands first.
These are fantastic! I chilled the mixture overnight which made less kitchen time the next day and made the balls more solid. Will definitely make these again.
I love coconut and these are so good. Easy to mix up and make.
We dipped in dark chocolate an they were fantastic ! Added to the list for christmas candy. I'd like to try with milk chocolate. Yum
