I am so so excited to share this no bake 2 ingredient coconut ball recipe with you guys. I am also super excited to tell you about a challenge I made for myself a couple of months ago!
So, a couple of months ago I was not posting as frequently as I would’ve wanted so I decided to make it a goal to reach 100 posts before the new year and this is it!
This is my hundredth post… Yaay!!
So since this is a special post, I wanted to share a special recipe. Ever since I was a child, we would use sweetened condensed milk for so many recipes and around this time of the year we would make these delicious snow ball looking treats because well… CHRISTMAS!! Who else is as excited as I am 🙂
What is so special about these coconut truffles or balls?
Well, first off they’re made with only 2 ingredients! I can literally never say no to a 2 ingredient recipe. With that little amount of ingredients you know that this is going to be an easy coconut ball recipe!
Another thing is that these coconut balls are very similar to Raffaello coconut balls with the exception that they do not have the toasted hazelnut in the middle. If you are feeling adventurous feel free to add it in there though! It comes out amazing with a crunchy nut in the middle.
Last, these condensed milk coconut balls will come together in less than an hour and everyone, I tell you, everyone will absolutely love them. They are the perfect little snack for the holiday! Or anytime for that matter…
Ingredients for this no bake coconut ball recipe
- Unsweetened desiccated coconuts
- Sweetened condensed milk
YES! This is all you are going to need, condensed milk and unsweetened desiccated coconuts to make the best no bake coconut dessert
Can I use sweetened shredded coconut?
You can, but I highly suggest that you don’t go with the sweetened option. The sweetened condensed milk is so sweet already that you don’t want to over do it with the sweet stuff. Try your hardest to get unsweetened shredded coconuts for this recipe 🙂
Can I make these no bake coconut balls vegan?
Absolutely! Just make sure that you are using a vegan option instead of the sweetened condensed milk. I recommend this Nature’s Charm Sweetened Coconut Condensed Milk.
