🥘 Ingredients You'll Need to Make No Bake Coconut Chocolate Balls
- Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
- Coconut Milk
- Melted Butter
- Dark Chocolate Baking Bar or Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers
👩🍳 How to Make Dark Chocolate Coconut Balls?
- First: take two cups of unsweetened shredded coconut. Into that add some coconut milk and melted butter and mix well. Make sure that you do not add too much coconut milk or melted butter. Too much liquid agent will actually make it really hard for you to make small balls.
- Second: Make Small Balls of Coconut and let them freeze uncovered until completely set.
- Lastly: Melt Dark chocolate baking bar or Dark chocolate melting wafers and coat your coconut balls in melted dark chocolate. Let them chill in the freezer for 10-more minutes. Serve with some shredded coconut on top. Enjoy!
🍫 🥥Things to Take Care of While Making Dark Chocolate Coconut Balls
- Do not add too much liquid agent. In this recipe, the two liquid agents that we use are melted butter and coconut milk. Since we have to make small balls of coconut, we cannot afford to add too much liquid. Just enough to make a ball.
- Melting Dark chocolate in Oven: You can either melting dark chocolate in an oven at a 30-second increment or on a double boiler. If you are melting in an oven then make sure you stir at every 30-second mark and do not wait for the chocolate to melt completely in the oven. Once you see it's 80% melted and you are able to break the baking bar then take it out and whisk vigorously at room temperature. Too much heat will burn the chocolate and we do not want that.
- Melting Dark Chocolate on Stovetop: When you are melting dark chocolate on the stovetop then do the following. First, put a large pot of water to boil. As soon as it comes to a boil lower the heat and place a large heat-proof bowl on the pan. Place your chocolate and stir until it melts. You can add some butter to help you melt chocolate. (But, that is totally optional). Some people also prefer coconut oil instead of butter while melting chocolate.
- Shaping the Balls: When you are shaping the dark chocolate coconut balls you might feel that they are not getting a perfectly round shape. No Biggie! Just make a ball and place it in the freezer. After about 10-minutes you can take them out and give them a perfect round shape and then again place it in the freezer.
- Coating in chocolate: When you are coating your Coconut Chocolate balls make sure you shake off excess chocolate by tapping your fork on the edge of the bowl. If you do not do this, then once your Dark chocolate coconut balls are frozen, you will have a large base of chocolate on the bottom of the ball. So, to prevent that, you should always shake off excess chocolate by tapping your fork on the edge of the plate.
🗒️ Dark Chocolate Coconut Balls: Substitutions & Replacements:
- Coconut Oil: Instead of coconut milk you can add coconut oil to make small coconut balls.
- Chocolate Chips: In case you don't have a dark chocolate baking bar or dark chocolate melting wafers you can use dark unsweetened or semi-sweet chocolate chips. You can melt it the same way you melt bar or melting wafers in the oven or on the stovetop.
- Honey or Maple Syrup: If you want your Dark chocolate coconut balls to be sweet then you can add some honey or maple syrup while making the balls.
- Sweetened Shredded Coconut: For sweetness, you can also add some sweetened shredded coconut instead of unsweetened shredded coconut.

- 2 Tablespoons Coconut Milk
- 3 Tablespoons Melted Salted Butter adjust as per requirement
- 4 Oz Melting Dark Chocolate Wafers or Dark Chocolate Baking Bar
- In a bowl mix shredded coconut with coconut milk with melted butter. It should not be too runny. It should come together in the form of a ball.

- In the meantime melt dark chocolate wafers or dark chocolate baking bar (either in an oven at 30-seconds increment or on the stovetop). Read instructions for melting chocolate like a pro in the blog post. Allow chocolate to come down to room temperature. Use an off-set spatula to take out coconut balls from the baking sheet. Place one ball on a fork. Dip the ball in melted dark chocolate. Coat it completely. Tap the fork on the edge of the plate so that excess chocolate drips off and place them back on the baking sheet. Repeat this with all of your coconut balls. Freeze them uncovered for 10-minutes or refrigerate for 30-minutes. Enjoy with some shredded coconut on top.
- Instead of coconut milk, you can also use coconut oil to make the balls.
- If you prefer sweet coconut balls you can add some honey or maple syrup while making the balls.
