It just isn’t Christmas without Coconut Balls. I love Mounds and Almond Joy candy bars, and these little delights are better than either one. My mother has been making coconut balls for as long as I can remember. Like Chex Mix, Fonda’s Fantasy Fudge, and Peanut Butter Balls, Coconut Balls are a fixture during the holiday season.
If coconut is your thing, then you must make these little jewels!
