Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Mix coconut, condensed milk, powdered sugar and/or chopped nuts (optional) in a medium to large glass bowl (if you have a glass bowl, if not a metal or plastic one will do). Beat/mix by hand, using a very heavy duty spoon, mix very well. Put in freezer (until you get the chocolate and wax mixture done).
  • Take semi-sweet chocolate chips and add part of the paraffin wax in a double boiler (if you don't have a double boiler, take a small pot and place it inside a pot just a little bigger add a few inches of water in the big pot, depending on the sizes of your pots your using. Melt chocolate and the wax on med heat until it melts then turn to low heat, add water to bottom pot as needed but make sure you don’t put too much water or get any water in the chocolate mixture. Keep adding wax to the melted chocolate until you can hold a small bit under cold water and it stays semi hard to hard. (Use a small metal spoon to test the chocolate.)
  • Now take your coconut mix out of the freezer and butter your hands lightly and start making balls, work kind of fast, use a toothpick to dip each ball in the chocolate. Then put them on wax paper (use cookie sheets to place wax paper on). Set the cookie sheet full in refrigerator or freezer for about 1 hour or until chocolate has hardened. If your coconut mixture becomes soft and starts sticking to your hands (if you have any left from the first batch) replace in freezer for about 15 to 20 minutes, then start all over with the making of balls and dipping and refrigerate.
  • Now, once you have all of them hardened, take them off waxed paper and put the candies in an airtight bowl and refrigerate them or a freezer Ziploc bag because you can also freeze them. You can eat them right out of the freezer bag. Doesn't require thawing at all.


I know the directions are long but they are important to know and letting you know what to use in place of something you have or don’t have. This recipe can make more or less than 30+ depending on your size of the balls you make. But I guarantee you'll love these chocolate/coconut candies and by the way, share them with family and friends they will be back for more especially if they love coconut. **You can also add chopped nuts in the coconut mixture. I use chopped pecans, and/or take pecan halves' and place one in the middle of each ball before I start dipping. Just experiment with different nuts or add your favorite nut(s). Enjoy! If you have chocolate left over pour it on wax paper and let it get hard then break it up and freeze it for next time you make this recipe and trust me you will!
