Hey everybody and happy post-Thanksgiving! Is everyone just like super-full? ‘Cause we are. And I must confirm: the pie crusts in the last post were the best pie crusts we have a had in a couple of years. And now on to this recipe. We are a bit sick over here, enduring a bout of pretty bad flu. Poor Dad was craving candy this morning, so of course I don’t want him eating jawbreakers and Snickers because they are not exactly healing foods, to put it lightly. Dad’s favorite candy is Mounds bars, so I set out to create a version with just a bit more healing power to it. These macaroons have lots of coconut fat in them, which is shown to help with sickness. And of course they taste delicious, which is a plus because it’s hard to get sick people to eat. The fat in the chocolate and coconut provides energy, while the honey, provided it is raw, has nourishing enzymes. So yes, they have some sugar, but they are a sight healthier than a Mounds bar! Plus, my family RAVED about them. Just sayin’.

    do these kind of taste like mounds bars? i always loved almond joys so i’d probably put an almond in the center of these!

      Hi Joanna,
      Yes that is exactly what they taste like! Love the idea of putting an almond in the center! If you try it let me know!

        i made these tonight and they are so yummy!!! i didn’t put chocolate on them yet but the coconut balls themselves are great. i added a little almond extract to half of them to see if it was good. i can’t decide which i like better haha i guess i’m a lover of all things coconut.

          So glad you liked them! Love the idea of almond extract!

    These are so-o-o-o pretttteeeeee! Festive! Suggest using the VERY best fruity top note dark chocolate you can find. Maybe even slip a drop or two of kirsch liqueur into the chocolate? Ohhh, yes. Bookmarking this page for later!
