Originally, these were going to be caramel bites made with dates and a little bit of coconut. However, the consistency wasn’t quite right and before I knew it the coconut had taken over! But not to worry, they tasted great anyway!
I love chocolate in all shapes and forms and a box of chocolates with various fillings (like the ones you get for Valentine’s Day) is one of my top favorites. But I rarely eat them because of their high sugar content and long list of unrecognizable ingredients! These Chocolate Covered Coconut Bites help fill that void. Made with only 3 ingredients they are a much healthier version of those sinful (yet delicious) boxes of chocolates.
*Put soaked dates and any remaining water into food processor.
**You will know the dough is ready when it is a uniform texture and color. You will be able to mold it into a ball, but it will be very sticky…hence the refrigeration.
***I made 22 bite-sized balls and placed them on a baking sheet lined with wax paper.
Dough is just right! Scrape into mixing bowl and refrigerate.
Roll dough into bite-sized balls after refrigeration.
Melt one cup of your choice of chocolate then coat balls in said chocolate. I used a Godiva dark chocolate Easter bunny 🙂
Refrigerate to let chocolate set then enjoy!
Question for you guys: What is your favorite filling in a box of chocolates?
