Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the shredded coconut, coconut milk and maple syrup. Mix until everything is well incorporated. If the mixture is too wet, gradually add desiccated coconut until you reach the desired consistency.
  2. Shape the mixture into balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze for 10 to 15 minutes to firm up.
  3. While the balls are in the freezer, melt the dark chocolate in the microwave.
  4. Once the coconut balls are set, dip each one into the melted chocolate, making sure they are completely coated.
  5. Return the chocolate-coated balls to the parchment-lined tray. If using, sprinkle with additional coconut flakes.
  6. Refrigerate the Bounty Balls until the chocolate is completely set.
  7. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Enjoy these deliciously healthy Bounty Balls, a perfect treat to satisfy your sweet tooth while keeping things light and healthy!
