Coconut Chocolate Balls

When my children were younger, I used to organize their birthday parties at home. I would invite all their friends and arranged for a nice party in our garden in Abu Dhabi. In the menu, I used to make these balls, which were very much appreciated by everybody. My children, who still like them until now, reminded me of them this summer as I was preparing for my grandson’s birthday; he loves them now too. As for myself, I still like making them because no baking is needed and they’re quick to do.

  • Take a small amount of the dough and roll it in you hands to form a ball shape then roll it into the coconut
