A quick and easy recipe to prepare these delicious round chocolate flavored sweets covered with shreds of coconut   Traditionally prepared during Christmas period.

2 tablespoons cocoa

I love this recipe , it is very easy and the final coconut balls are very tasty.   Place the biscuits into a blender and crush the biscuits into tiny crumbs.

Prepare a bowl with coconut and set it aside.  Cut small pieces from the pasty (around a tablespoon) roll it between the palms of your hands to form a ball.  Optionally you can  place a walnut in the center of the ball.  Drop the ball in the coconut bowl and shake well until all the ball is cover with coconut.  You can server them immediately or store them in a cool place before serving.
