Chocolate coconut balls – Kókuszgolyó

by | Apr 18, 2016 | Desserts

Chocolate coconut balls are simple, but delicious desserts. You just have to combine the ingredients, shape balls and roll them into shredded coconut. The base of the mass is Hungarian all pupose crackers (háztartási keksz), which are sligthly sweet, crunchy biscuits. The crackers’ taste is not so characteristic, rather neutral, that’s why they can be flavoured in any way you want. All purpose crackers can be found in every Hungarian grocery, whole or ground.

I added sour cherry jam to the mixture, but you can replace it with any sourish jam, for example raspberry jam goes well with cocoa and rum, too. I used rum extract, which has a concentrated rum flavour without the high alcohol content associated with real rum. If you serve kókuszgolyó to kids, feel free to use non-alcoholic imitation rum extract.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
