Ferrero Raffaello Coconut Candy Balls

raffaello 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
Prep time
Total time
Homemade version of Ferrero Raffaello's famous Coconut Candy Balls.
Serves: Makes 24 cookies
  • 2 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • ⅔ cup unsweetened finely shredded coconut flakes
  • ¾ cup chopped hazelnuts or almonds (I prefer the hazelnuts)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of butter, melted
  • finely shredded coconut flakes to cover the cookie ball
  1. In a large mixing bowl thoroughly combine the graham cracker crumbs, coconut flakes, hazelnuts and powdered sugar.
  2. Stir the milk and melted butter into the dry mixture, and mix until everything is well combined.
  3. Cover and chill for one hour.
  4. Shape small bits of the dough into balls and roll them in the coconut flakes.
  5. Put the cookie balls in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.
  6. You can also store these for a few days in the refrigerator in tightly covered containers.
Total time includes refrigeration time.
