Coconut Candy Bar Bites

These candies are an impressive gift. I love giving homemade truffles for the holidays.

If you are more of an Almond Joy kind of person, you can add a toasted almond to the top of the coconut balls before freezing. Because sometimes you feel like a nut!

After they are frozen you can dip them into the melted chocolate. Let the candies sit until the chocolate is firm.
