Coconut Cream Truffles
April 16, 2015
These are the perfect coconut truffle: a creamy center filled with coconut flavor and shredded coconut, all surrounded by chocolate. When you can't find your favorite coconut cream candies at the store, these are the perfect stand-in.
- Yields: 18 Truffles
Drop tablespoon sized balls on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet and roll into uniform balls. Chill for at least 1 hour before dipping. You can wrap the cookie sheet with foil and chill overnight, if needed.
When ready to dip, melt candy melts according to package directions. Dip each ball into the melts, tapping off the excess, and place on a new cookie sheet lined with wax paper. (If your truffles start to get soft, pop them in the freezer for a few minutes before continuing.) Sprinkle with sprinkles or coconut, if desired.
