These crispy chocolaty balls were made by me for my nephew and he just loved the crispiness and the flavours. He told me to re make them as he wanted to make his friends taste them as well. A great recipe.

Sounds great, will definitely try! But when do I use the coconut mentioned in ingredients? It is missing from the method.
