Why I Love This Recipe

These pretty coconut-speckled candies are rolled in grated chocolate, but you could also coat them in finely chopped nuts or chocolate sprinkles. I sometimes substitute almond extract for the vanilla and coat them in chopped toasted almonds. Indulge without the guilt!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese
Sugar substitute equivalent to 1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flaked coconut
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, grated


In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar substitute, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Stir in coconut. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle.

Shape into 1-in. balls; roll in grated chocolate. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
