Equipment

  • Microwave or Thermomix

Ingredients

  • 360 g (4 cups) desiccated coconut
  • 395 g sweetened condensed milk
  • 250 g dark chocolate

Instructions

Conventional Method

  • Place the coconut and sweetened condensed milk into a large bowl and mix until well combined (it will be sticky).
  • Roll mixture into heaped teaspoon-sized balls and place onto a baking tray.
  • Place the tray into the freezer for 30 minutes to firm.
  • Place the dark chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl.
    Melt on 50% power in 30 second bursts until just melted (stirring each time with a dry metal spoon).
  • Using two small spoons, dip and coat each of the coconut balls into the melted chocolate mixture, allowing any excess to drip off.
  • Place back onto the baking tray and drizzle with extra melted chocolate if desired.
    TIP: I like to drizzle a small amount of white chocolate over the top for contrast.
  • Repeat with remaining balls.
  • Keep refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Thermomix Method

  • Add the coconut and sweetened condensed milk to the Thermomix bowl and mix on Reverse, Speed 4 until completely combined.
  • Roll mixture into heaped teaspoon-sized balls and place onto a baking tray.
    Place the tray into the freezer for 30 minutes to harden.
  • Place chocolate melts into a clean and dry Thermomix bowl. Melt for 3 minutes, 50 degrees, Speed 2, or until melted.
  • Using two small spoons, dip and coat each of the coconut balls into the melted chocolate mixture, allowing any excess to drip off.
  • Place back onto the baking tray and drizzle with extra melted chocolate if desired.
    TIP: I like to drizzle a small amount of white chocolate over the top for contrast.
  • Repeat with remaining balls.
  • Keep refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Notes

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk - I recommend using full fat (not skim or light) sweetened condensed milk as it sets firmer. Nestle is my preferred brand.
  • Chilling the balls - if you don't freeze the balls before dipping them into the melted chocolate, they will be too soft and will fall apart. Don't skip this step!
  • Dipping the balls in chocolate - place the melted chocolate into a small bowl or ramekin. Use two small spoons to quickly toss the balls (one at a time) through the melted chocolate until they are completely coated. Allow any excess to drip off before placing onto a flat tray.
  • Store - the Bounty Balls in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
  • Freeze - the balls in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Allow to defrost in the fridge before consuming.
