White Chocolate Coconut Balls

I recently had a white chocolate coconut ball and it was out of this world!!



Do you have the recipe that includes, cream cheese, macadamia nuts, coconut, powdered sugar and not sure what else but then you dip them into the white chocolate covering the entire ball.

It is so yummy!!!







Hi Susie,

I'm not familiar with that particular recipe, but I had a look around and found one you could try. I'm not a huge coconut fan, so you be the judge.


Do you know where the one you ate came from? Maybe we could locate the recipe if you have more specifics.


Until then, here you go...


White Chocolate Coconut Balls



Ingredients Needed:

  • 1 cup Macadamia nuts, chopped and toasted
  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 bag (7 oz size) shredded coconut, sweetened
  • 1 bag (12 oz size) white chocolate chips


How to make:

  1. Mix together in a bowl the condensed milk, almond extract, macadamia nuts, and coconut.

  2. Form the mixture into balls about 3/4 of an inch in size by pressing firmly with your fingers.

  3. Place balls on waxed paper lined trays and allow to sit at room temperature for 4 hours or in the fridge for 1 hour.

  4. After your coconut balls are firmly set, melt the white chocolate (over a double boiler or in the microwave - stirring every 30 seconds). Dip the balls in the white chocolate.

  5. Place the white chocolate covered coconut balls on a wax paper lined tray to set.





Let me know if you use the recipe for coconut balls and how you like it!

Dear Angie,
Thanks I will try this. The recipe I tasted came from Sineca, South Carolina. A man that lives there brought them to a youth function in McRae,Ga. Not sure if this recipe came from church cook books (the best) or somewhere else but that is the area he lives in.

Church Cookbooks Have The Best Recipes
by: Angie

Hi Susie,

Yes, I think church cookbooks have the best recipes, too. I have quite a collection of them myself. :-)


All of the recipes like this I found were pretty similar. I wasn't able to locate one that had cream cheese in it, but it does sound really yummy.


I suppose you could take a look at the truffle recipes that contain cream cheese and just improvise, swapping out the coconut for crushed cookies, white chocolate chips for milk chocolate, etc.


Just use the 'search' feature at the top of the page and type in cream cheese to locate some recipes to play around with.


It's worth a shot if you can remember what they were like and have your heart set on repeating the delicious experience. :-)


Keep us posted!

Big Mistake NEW
by: Trish

The above recipe is no good. It doesn't tell you what to do with the coconut.

White Chocolate Coconut Balls NEW
by: Angie

Eeek! You're right, Trish. I made a typo and left out the coconut in step 1. I've fixed it now. :)

Thanks for pointing out that mistake so no one else gets stuck making coconut balls without the coconut!
