    Maize's Homemade Coco Nut Balls

    There are going to be some lucky people this year who will receive my homemade coco nut balls this holiday season! The most labor intensive portion of the recipe is dipping the balls in chocolate. Otherwise, it's super simple!

    I found these little take out containers at The Paper Zone and printed off labels on matte white labels. I then spray painted them with a clear gloss and sprinkled fine pink glitter over the top.

    The inside is lined with parchment paper and wax paper. These little containers fit about 3-4 coco nut balls.

    Here's the recipe. Enjoy!

    2 cups coconut

    3 cups finely chopped nuts

    1/2 pound butter (2 sticks)

    2 pounds powdered sugar (1 bag)

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    1 can sweetened condensed milk (Eagle)

    Chocolate Almond Bark

    Mix: 2 cups coconut, 3 cups nuts and 1/2 pound of butter.

    Add: 2 pounds powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk.

    Roll into balls the size of small walnuts and chill overnight. Melt almond bark, dip balls in, remove with toothpicks, place on paper till cool. Can be frozen.

    I tried putting the image on this post but it won't allow me to.

    Once they are dipped in chocolate they're just fine. I refrigerate the balls until I'm ready to dip in chocolate. They can be frozen. I ship mine all over the place.

    Have fun!
