Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil

  • Chocolate dip (1/4 cup & 2 tbsp chocolate chips & 1/2 tsp coconut oil)

  2. Scoop firmly packed balls of coconut mixture and place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Gently flatten the top of each ball (where the almond will be placed later). Freeze for 15-20 minutes.
  3. To prepare chocolate dip: In microwave safe bowl add the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Heat in 20-30 second increments until smooth, stirring in between heating.
  4. Remove coconut balls from freezer and dip bottom half into the chocolate mixture. Dip one half of an almond into the chocolate mixture and place on top of the ball. There will be enough chocolate left over to drizzle on top.
