Just so you know I tripled the recipe. For your purpose, use above recipe first to see if you like it. Then go from there.

Method :

1. Blend coconut in food processor ( see my YOUTUBE video) . Remove from blender and place in small container.

2. Next — Blend Coconut Milk in food processor and place in saucepan on stove. Heat up under medium- low heat and add sugar. Mix evenly until it comes to a simmer.

3. In a separate bowl place your white chocolate chips. Now add your hot coconut cream into the white chocolate chips. Let sit for 5 minutes and then mix throughout.

4. Now — add 1 1/2 cup of ground coconut to the coconut cream mixture. Once mixed, place in fridge for at least 30 minutes.

5. Bring out mixture from fridge and place in a shallow pan. Now place into a freezer for 2 – 4 hours.

6. Place 1/2 cup of hazelnuts onto baking sheet and place in preheated oven of 400 degrees F for 5 minutes.

7. Bring out coconut mixture from freezer and begin forming the coconut mixture around the hazelnut. Form into balls and place on sheet. Put back into freezer for 5 hours or wait until the next day.

8. Next – it’s time to temper your semi-sweet milk chocolate chips. ( see my YOUTUBE video ). To make it easier for yourself, warm up 1/2 cup of 33 % liquid whipping cream and add to chocolate chips. Mix until a nice smooth stream ( see my YOUTUBE video ) Let cool for 10 minutes before dipping the coconut cream balls.

9. Take coconut cream balls out of freezer and begin dipping in the milk chocolate ( see my YOUTUBE video for visual description)

10. Place back into freezer for 4 – 5 hours.

11. Bring out and enjoy !
