Coconut Truffles

One of my favorite candy bars happens to be a Mounds Bar. There is nothing better than coconut and chocolate together in one sweet treat. During the holidays, I will make a couple batches of our Homemade Chocolate Covered Cherries and also a batch of these Coconut Truffles.

I like to have homemade candies on hand for when we have friends and family visiting over the holidays. I will quite often make extras just to gift. You can toss homemade candies in a clear cellophane bag with a ribbon and tag. They make for personal and inexpensive gifts to give to neighbors, teachers, etc.

The main reason I like these coconut cream truffles is that they are so simple. Plus they are super inexpensive to make. I purchased my coconut and my sweetened condensed milk right at Aldi for under $2.

I made this batch yesterday morning in little to no time. Since there is no baking involved, I just have to wait for the coconut mixture to firm before coating them in chocolate. So simple!

You will need some sweetened coconut, sweetened condensed milk, powdered sugar, butter, and some chocolate melting chips. Since these are so simple, I plan to have my kiddos whip up a couple extra batches this holiday to give to their friends’ parents.

  1. I have the sinking feeling i should make another batch of these. I just dont think one batch will be enough. So back to the kitchen i go. I can’t wait to try one.

  2. I made the coconut truffles for a co-worker and she absolutely loved them and wants me to make more which I will. I also made the chocolate covered cherries but I don’t know how those turned out yet got to wait that week to find out but they smelt amazing when I was making them. Thank you,

  3. 5 stars
    Usually, people post coconut truffles with WAY too much sugar in them, and they just aren’t good. These have just the right amount of sweet. I brought them to a get together and people couldn’t stop eating them. Thanks for posting this recipe before I had to get busy and figure out one for myself!

    1. Hi Ellen! It’s best to keep the Coconut Truffles stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container until you are ready to gift. Then, best if served at room temperature. I hope that helps. Merry Christmas to you!

  4. These are amazing!!! I made them for Christmas this year and my family could not believe I made them! They thought they came from a bakery! And they were so easy! Thank you for this!! I will make again!
