Coconut Cocoa Balls Recipe @pinch

Sweet and dense, these no havebake cookie balls are worth every darn calorie the author mentions. If you love coconut and chocolate, these are for you. They have a nice chocolate flavor and the coconut coating is the perfect complement. Once they are chilled, they have the perfect texture and a slight rum flavor comes through. It is like a rum ball without the harsh alcohol flavor. A beautiful addition to a dessert tray during the holidays. I have limited myself to making these around Christmas only because they are loaded with calories. As a little girl, I made these with my Danish grandma... so at Christmastime, I always remember the wonderful time I had with her and my mom, as well. My friends love it when I wrap some up as a gift. Even though I keep them in the fridge, they somehow evaporate in a blink of an eye. Enjoy have I do : have)
