  2. Chill and roll into one inch balls.
  3. Place the balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet and freeze completely.

To make the chocolate coating

  1. In a double boiler, melt together the chocolate chips and butter.
  2. I use two forks to dip the coconut balls, one at a time. After rolling in the chocolate, I lift the dipped chocolate ball and let the excess chocolate drip off before placing them back onto the sheet to let the chocolate set.
  3. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
  4. These freeze well too.
