For a simple coconut balls recipe, you only need 3 ingredients: desiccated coconut, condensed milk, and chocolate.
Add the desiccated coconut to a spacious bowl and then pour in the condensed milk.
Mix the ingredients with your hands or a spatula until they form a dough-like mixture. Press firmly to ensure the coconut sticks together.
The mixture should be soft and pliable, not crumbly at all. Shape it into 1-inch balls and place them on a plate. Set aside.
Melt chocolate in the microwave for 30 sec then 15 sec and then 10 seconds and stir in between. Keep the chocolate temperature below 86 F for milk chocolate (and 90F if using dark chocolate.)
I used a deep bowl because it allowed the ball to dip in completely. To coat drop each ball in chocolate and lift it with a fork.
Gently wipe the fork against the edge of the bowl to remove any excess chocolate from the balls, ensuring an even coating and preventing drips.
Keep each chocolate-coated ball on the tray lined with butter paper and let it set! If correctly tempered, the chocolate will set in a minute.
Use any sprinkle representing the occasion's theme or festivals like Independence Day, Christmas, or Halloween. Or just sprinkle shredded coconut to finish.
