Ingredients
To coat White Chocolate Coconut Candy:
Instructions
  1. Add 4 tbsp melted butter or coconut oil to 2 cups chocolate chips and microwave for about a little more than a minute in the following pattern: 20 seconds+20 seconds+10 seconds+10 seconds+10 seconds, stirring after each one. As soon as the chocolate is mostly melted stop heating and stir until the chocolate is smooth.

  2. Add the melted chocolate to 2 ½ cups coconut.

  3. Stir coconut with the melted chocolate. If the mixture clumps up, heat in the microwave for 10 seconds until the mixture is easy to stir. Using a tablespoon or a small ice cream scoop take a little bit of the coconut mixture, add an almond to the middle of it. Try to make the candies very small, the ingredients are rich and you want them to be one small bite.
  4. Using hands (you can wear disposable gloves to keep the mixture from sticking to your hands) form a ball, then roll between the palms of your hands until it's smooth. Now quickly while it's still somewhat soft roll in the coconut. If the chocolate hardens the coconut will not stick to the outside. If the coconut mixture becomes too hard to roll, just microwave the mixture for 5-7 seconds, stir and get back to rolling.
  5. The candies are ready to be eaten at this point.
  6. If you want the candy to have a white chocolate shell similar to the Raffaello candies, you can dip each candy in melted chocolate.
Prepare the white chocolate covering:
  1. In the microwave, melt 1 cup chocolate and 3 Tbsps coconut oil by heating in 10-15 second intervals until the mixture is smooth and thin.

  2. Now throw a couple rolled candies into the white chocolate, coat each one in chocolate, allow excess to drip off an
  3. Now give each candy another coat of the white chocolate by dipping it into the chocolate again, but now as soon as you remove it from the white chocolate drop it into the shredded coconut and roll around until it is covered.d place on a parchment lined tray.
  4. If you want, you can drizzle the remaining chocolate on top of the candies. Not necessary, but you can if you want.
  5. Transfer to a tray. The candies are ready to be served.
