Coconut Balls are my childhood favourite sweet. My mom use to make colourful coconut balls , and we both sisters simply love it..

Here , I showed 2 varieties of coconut ladoos .. Something different than a regular ladoos to make a perfect fusion dessert. I have wrapped the coconut balls in dark chocolate. The blend of chocolate and coconut gives a very unique taste to this dessert.

This is a winner , full proof recipe . Even a bachelor , beginner or someone who is far from family and wanna make some sweet by own , definately this Coconut Balls are the answer.

NOTES:

  • If you find dessicated coconut more coarse , you can grind a bit in a mixer jar with pulse method.
  • Here , I made only few chocolate coconut ladoos so used small amount of Dark Chocolate . Adjust the quantity as per your requirements.
  • One can add some Cardamom powder too.
  • Instead of Condensed Milk , one can use sugar too.

VARIATIONS:

  • One can use even semi sweet chocolate , but I personally liked the taste of dark chocolate .
  • These Coconut Balls are made with dessicated coconut , you can even use the fresh coconut.
  • One can use Sugar and Milk instead of condensed milk. Use around 3/4 cup of sugar while using 2 cups of coconut. Here , I referred 250 ml cup size..
  • Use Milk when using Fresh Coconut..

INGREDIENTS :

  • 250gm Desiccated Coconut
  • 200gm (half tin ) Condensed Milk
  • Dark chocolate

METHOD :

In a non stick pan mix dessicated coconut and condensed milk. Spare some dessicated coconut aside to sprinkle on ladoos.

Mix very well . Cook on slow flame for 4 to 5 minutes. Keep stirring till mixture starts leaving sides. It will look like a dough.

Switch off the gas. Allow it to cool little bit. Start shaping ladoos / balls while mixtutre is still hot.. Grease your palms with few drops of Ghee , then start shaping. Roll this balls in spared dessicated and keep aside.. I have kept some balls unwrapped in coconut , as with those ladoos we will see chocolate coconut ladoos ..

Lets make Chocolate Coconut Balls..

I have used bouble boiler method to melt the dark chocolate. You can melt in microwave too. For double boiler method, take some water in a small vessel. Once water starts boiling, place one more vessel. And place dark chocolate bar in it. Keep flame slow. Keep stirring till chocolate melts fully.

At this stage , be quick..

Dip each coconut ball in melted chocolate. With help of fork or spoon , place these dipped ladood on a plastic sheet or alluminium foil. Sprinkle some coconut and allow it to settled . One can keep in freeze too to fasten this step

Hope you all will enjoy this dessert with friends and family. Happy Diwali

TIPS

  • Grease your palms before shaping the ladoos to avoid sticking mixture in palms..
  • Make sure you always shape ladoos when the mixture warm.
  • Always use butter paper or silver foil to rest the chocolate dipped balls. If you directly place them on a plate the ladoos might stick to the plate..
  • Chocolate coconut balls can be easily stored in room temperature and the chocolate will not melt …
