Easy Cocoa Coconut Balls

User Rating 5 Star Rating (5 Reviews)


Easy Cocoa Coconut Balls
An easy no-bake treat, made with cocoa and coconut, along with sweetened condensed milk and confectioners' sugar.


  • 3 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 can (3 1/2 ounces) flaked coconut, about 1 1/3 cups
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional


In a large bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and cocoa; stir in the sweetened condensed milk and the vanilla, mixing thoroughly. The mixture will be quite stiff. Stir or knead in coconut and nuts, if using. Chill the mixture for about 30 minutes, then shape into 1-inch balls. Chill balls for at least 2 hours, or until firm. Store in tightly covered containers.
Makes about 5 dozen 1-inch balls.

Try replacing the coconut with chopped dry cherries.
