  1. A teaspoon of instant coffee
  2. 90 ml brandy (warmed)
  3. 115 g cream cheese (soft)

  1. Dissolve instant coffee in warm brandy
  2. In a bowl, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, almonds and rum mixture until combined
  3. Stir in the melted chocolate
  4. Put the mixture in the fridge and leave it in the cold for about an hour, until it is firm enough to start rolling into balls
  5. When the dough is firm enough, we start shaping it into balls
  6. Then roll the balls in crushed biscuits
  7. Store the chocolate balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator

Cocoa and coconut balls

Chocolate balls with coconut are a recipe from my childhood that could not be missing among the sweets at Christmas. My mom used to make them every year for Christmas and then give them out to our friends and neighbors. I didn’t like them, but today? Today I can beat them!

What will we need

  1. Table of cooking chocolate
  2. 500 g of powdered sugar
  3. 500 g of softened butter
  4. 400 g coconut (sweetened, shredded)
  5. A can of sweetened condensed milk
  6. ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract


  1. Mix the softened butter, vanilla and powdered sugar to a creamy consistency
  2. Add condensed milk and coconut
  3. Mix everything together thoroughly
  4. Put the dough in the freezer and freeze it for 2 hours or even overnight
  5. Then melt the chocolate in the microwave and mix
  6. Continue heating in 30 second intervals, stirring continuously until it melts, becomes smooth and most importantly prevents it from burning
  7. We form balls from the dough
  8. We then dip the coconut balls individually in chocolate and place them on a baking sheet covered with baking paper
  9. When the chocolate on the balls hardens, transfer the balls with chocolate to an airtight container and store in a cool place

I personally love peanut butter and peanuts in general. If you feel the same way as me, then do not hesitate to try these delicious and non-traditional Christmas recipes for peanut butter cookies .
One more little tip. Always make sure you buy good quality butter that is low in saturated fat. You wouldn’t believe the effect it will have on the entire recipe and on your health.
Consuming large amounts of saturated fatty acids causes inflammation in the body.

What kind of chocolate to use for the balls?

Chocolate comes from the beans of the cocoa tree. The beans are roasted and ground to create a paste called cocoa, which is then separated into cocoa butter and cocoa powder. Different ratios of cocoa butter, cocoa powder, sugar and other ingredients create different types of chocolate.

Cooking chocolate – also called dark chocolate. This type of chocolate contains 50-58% cocoa butter and has no added sugar. It should be used in recipes where we used another sweetener, such as brownies or chocolate bodies.

Bittersweet chocolate – this has the strongest chocolate flavor and contains at least 35% chocolate paste. Some premium brands contain 70% or more cocoa butter and cocoa solids. It is the best kind of chocolate for cooking and baking. Try making pudding, chocolate mousse, ganache and glaze from it, for example, they won’t go wrong.

Semi-sweet – has more added sugar and contains at least 35% chocolate paste. This chocolate excels most in recipes where chocolate plays a major role, such as chocolate cakes, chocolate buns or chocolate creams.

Sweet chocolate – contains at least 15% chocolate paste. We will use it, for example, in recipes for cookies with chocolate pieces.

Milk chocolate – contains at least 10% chocolate paste and at least 12% milk solids to give it a sweet and creamy taste. Use this chocolate as the final “topping” of a recipe for pancakes or muffins rather than in the batter.

White chocolate – not really “real” chocolate because it doesn’t contain chocolate solids. Contains at least 20% cocoa butter. It’s great in combination with nuts and salt – think white chocolate macadamia cookies.

Cocoa powder – can be sweet or bitter. It is made by drying and grinding the chocolate paste and removing most of the cocoa butter, leaving only 10-22% cocoa butter.

We recommend using the first three types of chocolate in our chocolate ball recipes. This is because there is always an additional sweetener added in the recipes and using sweet chocolate could lead to over-sweetening and at the same time the balls would lose the taste they should have, which is slightly bitter and bitter.

There is no harm in combining, for example, semi-sweet chocolate together with cocoa powder, which creates an interesting taste bridge, but do not forget to add more liquid ingredients so that the dough is not too thick.
