Servings 28 PIECES


  • 2 cups desiccated coconut
  • ¾ -1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ cup milk powder
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup honey or golden syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla or coconut extract
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 4 tbsp milk


  • 200 -300 g dark chocolate milk chocolate or mixed


  • chopped nuts

  • Melt the butter.
  • Sift milk powder and powdered sugar together.
  • Add desiccated coconut and mix well.
  • Add maple syrup, coconut, vanilla extract, butter and fresh milk.
  • Mix to make a soft dough.
  • Rest the dough for 10-15 minutes.
  • Wet your hands with water if necessary and make balls with the coconut dough. Take about a tablespoonful. Roll into a ball and flatten it slightly so it looks like a disc.
  • Put the discs in the freezer for 10-15 minutes.
  • Melt chocolate in the microwave oven or over hot water.
  • Line a tray with parchment /greaseproof paper.
  • Coat each disc with chocolate using a spoon and fork.
  • Shake off excess chocolate.
  • Put them on the tray. Sprinkle with chopped nuts or sprinkles.
  • Let it set in the fridge for 1 hour or so.
  • Store in the fridge in an airtight contianer if the weather is hot.


  • Put grated or chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl. Place it over a bowl or pan of hot water. The bowl should sit on the pan and not inside the pan. Stir till it melts.
  • I prefer using dark or semi sweet chocolate.
  • Add a flavouring of your choice.
  • Dip the ball or disc into the chocolate and remove it with a fork. Shake the fork gently to remove excess chocolate.
  • Make shapes from the coconut dough of your choice, small round balls or squares.
