Tropical Coconut Calamansi Snowballs

Who knew it snowed so deliciously in the tropics? 😉 This recipe is so easy & fun, & makes a great gift for the tropics fan!

Ingredients:

2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
1  1 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil
1 Tbsp coconut milk
1 Tbsp agave or maple syrup
3 Tbsp Sun Tropics Pure Calamansi
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
Melting chocolate, dark or milk (or both) 😉

Directions:

1. In a food processor, combine 1 cup shredded coconut with coconut oil. Scrape sides of bowl so evenly incorporated.

2. Add coconut milk, agave or maple syrup, Pure Calamansi, vanilla extract, & sea salt, and combine until blended.

3. Continue to slowly add remaining coconut until a nice batter is formed (you will likely have a bit of coconut left over).

4. Form the batter into small 1″ balls (if leftover coconut, roll the balls in the leftover coconut).

5. Refrigerate 4 hours, preferably overnight.

6. Melt the melting chocolate according to package instructions (or if using chocolate chips, microwave 30 seconds, stir, then in fifteen second increments, stirring before adding more time until reaching desired consistency), then coat each ball with the melting chocolate.
