  1. Combine the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter in a mixing bowl. Mix until evenly moistened.
  2. Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave). Do not overheat or chocolate will scorch. Stir the melted chocolate into the graham cracker mixture, you may need to use your hands to make sure it is evenly combined.
  3. Shape into 1 inch balls and roll them in the coconut. Store in an airtight container.

  • Cook's Note
  • As the mixture cools they are more difficult to shape so it helps to make these with friends or children to speed up the process.

This is one of my favorite Christmas treats to make for cookie trays or parties. I got the recipe for this years ago from a friend of a friend and have been making it ever since. This can be varied so many different way using whichever grahams are your favorite and rolling it in other toppings (chopped nuts, sprinkles, chopped candy canes) and it's always the first to get eaten. I like it best with chocolate or cinnamon grahams.

Fantastic for a quick, chocolatey snack. Not gourmet, but TASTY. I figured out the ratio so that it could be adapted into all sizes (which is 4:1:3:3 of cookie crumbs, butter, chocolate, and topping respectively, by the way) because I wasn't quite sure that it would turn out nicely and wanted to downsize it, but now I see that it would have been fine to keep it in its original, larger form! All gone, within one afternoon. I froze them for a little while after making, as they were quite gooey, and then they turned out heavenly. We used all sorts of things as topping, not just coconut - ground haselnuts, chopped pecans, sprinkles, chopped butterscotch chips... be creative. Lovely recipe.

Added extra chocolate for more flavor but still wouldn't hold the coconut. Ended up mixing it all together.

My 7 year old daughter & I just tried to make this for a holiday party. We used the exact amounts the recipe called for but it was too dry to form balls. So, we added more butter & chocolate to try to moisten it up, but still could not get balls to hold. The coconut would not stick to what balls I could form. They not only looked bad but tasted bad. It all ended up in the trash & we made a different dessert. Do not waste your time or ingredients on this.
