This month we thought we would give Mealz.com’s Bounty Balls a try!
This is must-try for even the most novices of bakers. Very easy and guilt – free! The ones I made were slightly bitter due to using Willies pure gold 100% cacao (which is great for those with a more savoury pallet). For less bitter and sweeter flavour I would recommend using Green and Blacks 70% coco dark chocolate which is readily available in many supermarkets. Of course, you can make them with milk chocolate but sugar content will increase.
Kids will absolutely love rolling the balls in their hands. Instead of ‘rolling’ the balls in chocolate it was far easier to place one on a wooden spoon (or normal larger tablespoon) and use a smaller spoon to pour chocolate on top and roll it around on the larger spoon. Less desiccated coconut in the mixture and more even coverage!
- 60 g of desiccated coconut (plus a little extra for dusting!)
- 40 g of dark chocolate (Organic – I used Willie’s pure gold 100% cacao)
- 2 tbsp of coconut oil (Organic)
- 2 tbsp of organic coconut yoghurt (dairy or coconut collaborative dairy free – I used Rachel’s organic Greek style coconut yoghurt)
- Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan on a low heat.
- Then mix in a bowl with the desiccated coconut and yoghurt
- Roll the mixture into small balls and place on grease proof paper
- Melt the chocolate in a bowl over hot water, and then simply roll the balls in the chocolate and leave to cool in the fridge
