Dark Chocolate Coconut Bites

Dark Chocolate Coconut Bites

Dark Chocolate Coconut Bites


  • 2 cups dessicated coconut
  • 4 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 5 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate for melting


  1. Pulse the coconut in a blender or food processor until the texture becomes like thick flour. Transfer to a bowl and add the honey or maple syrup and coconut oil. Stir until a thick paste forms.
  2. Using your hands, squeeze the mixture into about 18 small balls. I found that rolling was difficult because they weren’t sticky enough, but I was able to shape them into balls by first squeezing them in my palm a few times (you’ll get some oil on your hands), and then gently shaping it from an oval into a round ball. Place the coconut balls in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes or until firm. I could tell that mine were ready because there was a small white ring of solidified coconut oil around the base of each ball.
  3. Melt the chocolate slowly and gently until smooth and spreadable. We don’t have a microwave, so I had the best results melting this in a stainless steel bowl placed in a hot oven for about 10 minutes.
  4. Lay out a sheet of wax paper. Using two forks, roll each coconut ball in the chocolate until completely covered. Scoop the ball out with the fork and let the extra chocolate drip off the fork. Gently nudge the chocolate covered ball onto wax paper and chill until the chocolate has hardened. Store in the refrigerator.

  1. I don’t see where I am supposed to add the vanilla? Is it with the chocolate or in the balls themselves? Also, can I use a substitute for the coconut oil? I don’t have any in my house right now.

    Oops! I didn’t see the above comment until I had already mixed them up so my won’t have any vanilla. I am betting they will taste just fine anyway!

  3. Hi,can we substitute coconut oil with some other oil ?

  4. Oh dear, add vanilla to the coconut. I didn’t… don’t taste very good!

  5. I loved these. I omitted the vanilla and the chocolate. I just made coconut bites instead, just added a touch more honey.

  6. I am going to make these. I think I will put a whole almond in the center.

  7. They look so good and so easy to make as well!!!

  8. I just made them and they taste wonderful with all required ingredients I don’t see any other oil to use the other oils would be to heavy and greasy and they taste different without the vanilla better with it and also I used maple syrup cause I find honey to bitter…

  9. What is desiccated Coconut. Is regular coconut ok to use?
