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!

  2. Another great guest blog. I think I’ll have to visit Dixie Chik more often too. Looks like some good stuff. These desserts look delicious (and look like the kind of dessert that I could pop like crazy!)! 🙂

  3. Just checked out the recipe at Shea’s – but I wanted to tell you here that these are beeeautiful! They remind me of a coconutty version of bourbon balls – love this kind of easy sweet…

  4. These look delicious and I’m sure your friend enjoyed them. This is one of those confections that everyone loves. It is nice to have a recipe for it. Have a wonderful day. Blessings…Mary
