The 12 Balls of Christmas: Chocolate Macaroon Balls

Chocolate Macaroon Balls
Amy:
Well this is the last ball of Christmas! It’s been a fun and creative process! These balls we my husbands request….he loves macaroons! I make these in bar form usually and figured that they do quite nicely rolled up and coated in chocolate 🙂 Simple ingredients in this one and no need for a food processor!  Merry Christmas 🙂

Ingredients:
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 cup unsweetened coconut
2 heaping tablespoons honey or maple syrup

Chocolate coating:

1/2 cup coconut oil
3/4 cup cocoa or cacao powder
2 tsp vanilla
Pinch of salt

Directions:
1. Gentle melt the coconut oil and honey. Add the shredded coconut, stir well.

2. Place in the fridge, stirring occasionally until firm enough to form into balls. Roll between your hands to make about 12 1-inch balls. Place on parchment paper and freeze while you make the chocolate coating.

3. Melt chocolate ingredients together gently over a double boiler or use a bowl over a pot of water. Remove from heat when melted.

4. Dip each ball in the chocolate, all excess to drip off, place back on parchment paper.
Store in the fridge!
