2 1/2 (1 ounce) squares
2 2/3 tablespoons
I made these for the third time last week and agin they were loved by all. My top tip is to put cut the coconut first to make it a little finer and perhaps toast half of it so you get a bit of contrast. Try them people!
These were pretty good but I just didn't care for the texture of the filling. It was grainy and too moist.
Have to add my 2 cents- these are fabulous!! I like them with dark or milk chocolate more than white, but adding a white drizzle to the dark/milk coating is very pretty. I also tried just drizzling dark & white over the balls without dipping, which is very nice. Yum! I'm thinking about plopping an almond on the top for the next batch.
These were nice - I wouldn't say exceptional though. the mixture fell apart easily, especially when trying to put the almond inside the ball. I dipped these in white chocolate that was mixed with coconut - I loved the finished look. I topped them off with some green/red colored coconut for Christmas.
Unlike everyone else, this recipe gave me a great deal of trouble & I don't even like the end product. I'm pretty sure it'll be a hit though. My issue was with that the white chocolate coating (I used Baker's squares) never would set up -- it remains tacky even after freezing, and nevermind what it's going to do in the refrigerator. My recommendation to others is to use a standard 12 oz chocolate to 1 TB shortening melt for dipping (half that is sufficient for this recipe, so 6 squares and 1.5 tsps shortening melted together). These will probably be loved -- if so I will re-rate this at a 4 but if it remains 3 that means that overall this recipe was pretty neutral for us. Thank you for posting, I'm not sure why this didn't work out for me like it did for everyone else, I do love trying something new :) EDIT: I promised to come back and change my rating from a 3 to a 4 if these were loved, and they were. People were thrilled. I'm not one of those people, yet I may wind up being requested to make this recipe again, so it deserves the 4th star.
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!!!! Made them for a halloween party and they were a big hit!! Taste like a white choc. almond joy! yummm. Will make over and over again!!
very yummy - i used hazelnuts instead of almonds.
