These no-bake chocolate coconut balls are vegan, gluten-free, and easy to make. They’re the perfect holiday treat, and you’ll only need 3 ingredients to make them.


  • 7 oz chocolate bar, melted (200 g)
  • 1/2 cup and 1 tbsp coconut condensed milk (175 g)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded desiccated coconut (110 g)


  1. Mix the shredded coconut and condensed coconut milk into a large bowl.
  2. Line a plate with parchment paper, roll the coconut mixture into balls, and place them on the plate.
  3. Refrigerate them for at least 30 minutes to firm up the balls.
  4. Then, remove your coconut balls from the fridge. Melt the chocolate, dip the coconut balls in chocolate and place them on a cooling rack. Sprinkle more shredded coconut on top before they harden.
  5. Put the tray into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to harden the chocolate.


Storing tips: You can keep these coconut chocolate balls on an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze them for up to 2 months.

Roll into balls tip: Melt a little bit of coconut oil to rub in your hands before rolling the coconut mixture into balls to help avoid sticking.

Use coconut condensed milk at room temperature: Ensure your condensed coconut milk is at room temperature to facilitate mixing.

Use a baking rack: Using a baking rack will help the chocolate evenly spread around the coconut ball.
