Coconut Almond Bon Bons



I've been making coconut bon bons for many years - I even made them as party favors once for a friend's wedding. The first recipe I followed was loaded with powdered sugar and condensed milk. Of course, they were really delicious, but very high in empty calories. Today's recipe I developed is ridiculously simple, and has much more wholesome, nutritious ingredients. 

Coconut Almond Bon Bons make a fabulous gift for Valentines day and are sure to impress your loved ones, whatever the occasion. You can even try swapping out the almond meal for hazelnut flour, for a different but equally delicious filling. 

Above are tools that you can use for dipping things in chocolate. They are great, but if you don't have one a fork will do just fine. I like using a dark chocolate because it balances out the sweetness of the filling. Anything over 60% is great. 


  • 2 cups Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
  • 1 cup Almond Meal or Hazelnut flour
  • 1 cup Brown Rice Syrup
  • 200 grams Semisweet Chocolate


  1. Add coconut, almond meal and brown rice syrup to a medium bowl.
  2. Using an electric mixer, blend until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. 
  3. Roll coconut filling into little balls in the palm of your hands, and place them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper - evenly spaced. Note: If the filling is too tacky to work with, add more coconut or put it in the fridge until it becomes easier to handle.
  4. Place the filling balls in the fridge so they have the opportunity to set. About 15/20 mins. 
  5. Using a double boiler, slowly melt your chocolate. 
  6. Take set filling out of the fridge and dip them into fully melted chocolate one by one, making sure they are evenly coated. 
  7. Place your chocolate dipped bon bons in the fridge so they harden and set. 
  8. Enjoy! 

Get creative with how you package your Bon Bons. Presentation counts!
