Coconut Snowballs.

So, here's something: I bought a bag of chocolate coconut Easter M&M's yesterday, and the bag is almost gone today. Boston had like three, Jord isn't a huge coconut fan... so yeah. You do the math. Basically when I buy slash make chocolate coconutty things, I end up eating them all by myself. Which on the one hand, is great. Because hey! No sharing. But on the other hand, love handles! Come on, Kelsey. Let's practice some self control.


I've made these coconut snowballs more than once, because they're like the easiest thing to whip up in ten minutes. And not to mention they are insanely good. So you'll probably want to make them like tomorrow. But first! Find a friend or neighbor or random person on the street to share them with. Then you won't feel guilty slash have a sugar hangover for three days like I did.  And also, love handles, people! I need to work out.

And on that note! The recipe!

(adapted from original recipe, here)

3 cups sweetened flaked coconut
2 cups powdered sugar (the recipe recommends sifting. We skipped this step and no one complained)
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon shortening

Throw the first three ingredients in a bowl and mix it all up with your hands (it's messy. But also a good stress reliever?). Roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Then throw your chocolate chips in a bowl with the shortening, and microwave for thirty seconds at a time until the chocolate is smooth like buttah. Then you can either dip the coconut balls in the chocolate mixture one by one, or dip the end of a spoon in the chocolate and drizzle it across the tops. Either way, it's going to be good. So don't stress. 

Now eat at least three. 

I know.
