These vegan No-Bake Coconut Balls are perfect for the summer, but also great for the winter (they look like little snowballs, don’t you think?). I love no-bake desserts in summer because I don’t want to create even more heat in the apartment with the oven. They’re refreshing little balls of coconut goodness, topped with vegan chocolate. They are like mini bounties or mounds. :)
The Coconut Balls are rather soft because of the coconut milk – if you want them to be firmer, use more coconut oil and less coconut milk.
After letting the coconut balls harden in the fridge I’ve drizzled the chocolate over the coconut balls – a spoon or a fork works great for this.
I then placed them back in the fridge for the chocolate to harden but this only took a few minutes. Then they’re good to go! Enjoy and leave the rest of these beauties in the fridge as the coconut oil may melt if it’s too hot outside!
- In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients for the Coconut Balls except the chocolate and mix and knead them with your hands until you can form the balls. Put the balls on a baking sheet and place them in the fridge to harden for a couple of hours or overnight.
- For the chocolate coating, heat the baking chocolate in a double boiler until melted, swirl it over the coconut balls with a fork.
- Put the coconut balls back in the fridge again until the chocolate swirls harden!
Keep them in the fridge for storage, as the coconut oil may melt if it's too warm.
Should you decide to give these a try I’d love to hear how it went! Write me a comment or post a picture on instagram and tag me via @elephantasticvegan to make sure I’ll see it ^.^
