raffaello balls thumb Ferrero Raffaello Coconut Candy Balls

I made these Ferrero Raffaello Coconut Candy Balls for my friend Shea because she is one special lady.

Shea was one of the very first few readers to leave a comment on my blog some 7 months ago. She, and a few others, broke the ice, and I will never ever forget that.  ((((Hugs))))

Today Shea has invited me to do a guest post on her blog, Dixie Chik Cooks!

Ferrero Raffaello Coconut Candy Balls

Homemade version of Ferrero Raffaello's famous Coconut Candy Balls.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened finely shredded coconut flakes
  • 3/4 cup chopped hazelnuts or almonds (I prefer the hazelnuts)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of butter, melted
  • finely shredded coconut flakes to cover the cookie ball

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl thoroughly combine the graham cracker crumbs, coconut flakes, hazelnuts and powdered sugar.
  • Stir the milk and melted butter into the dry mixture, and mix until everything is well combined.
  • Cover and chill for one hour.
  • Shape small bits of the dough into balls and roll them in the coconut flakes.
  • Put the cookie balls in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.
  • You can also store these for a few days in the refrigerator in tightly covered containers.

    Those ferrero candies are crazy addictive, I’m sure these are great (and much simpler to make than a ‘dupe’ recipe).
