Childhood memories and a recipe for coconut-balls

One of the first things I ever ‘baked’ were little coconut-balls. You don’t actually bake them, you basically just add all the ingredients together and form little balls out of the mixture. I am aware that this doesn’t sound like the most exciting thing – but believe me: you will be surprised how good they taste!

Making those balls again with my little brother made me go all sentimental as I used to make those little things with my two brothers and other kids from our neighbourhood probably around 13 years ago when my youngest brother was just three years old and super excited to help and make them.
Now he is 16 and we finally decided to make them again.

Have a look at the recipe, it is so quick and easy.

I made twice the amount straight away but for 20-25 coconut balls you will need:

100g Butter
90g oats
35g desiccated coconut (+ around half a pack more for decoration)
75g icing sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp cold water

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and knead them really well.
Form out of the dough little bowls and roll them in the desiccated coconut.
Put the balls on a baking tray with baking paper and let them set for a bit.
…and that’s it 🙂

Well, all the coconut balls were gone after two days. They are so addictive and sooo good!
If you make them it would be great if you could show me some pictures.

Have a great weekend and a great first of advent!
