Chocolate and Coconut balls

Serves: circa 100 small balls

Prep: 20min (allow 2hs to cool in the fridge)

Difficulty: super easy

I guess this recipe is my Proust’s madeleine, one bite of these delicious chocolate and coconut balls and I am back in time, in another kitchen, on a footstool with my hands covered with coconut flour, next to my mum

Mamma Flora’s Tip: if you have a party, make double the amount, they will go very quickly!
