Oh My Goodness !!!  I don’t even know where to start…..should I talk about ‘How delicious they areor ‘How easy it is to make them‘ ?

I mean, for once I’m completely blank (which never happens if you know me ;).

Coconut Peppermint Truffles Ingredients:

  • Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
  • Condensed Milk
  • White Chocolate Candy Melts
  • Peppermint Bark

These Coconut Peppermint Truffles are super easy and if you haven’t made them, then you’re missing out on a whole lot of fun n yum!

I mean 10 minutes, that’s exactly how much time it took to make them and since it’s so cold these days, we didn’t even keep them in the fridge to set as they were already ready to eat.

The only thing that needed any sort of cooking or heating to be exact was the candy melts.

Once they got done, it was a total breeze. 

Pro Tip for Making these 

Whenever you work with candy melts, always mix, prep, and complete the other process before your candy melt is ready.

You can’t do anything else other than coating or be sprinkling them(especially in winter). They harden up real soon.

I made these Coconut Peppermint Truffles for a fun kid’s holiday party giveaway in our community and I think, most of the truffles disappeared even before the party got over.

And it was so much fun to see kids’ reactions when they bit into the truffles…we had lots of Ohhhhh, Awe n Can I have some more.

Although I made 30 bags (6 truffles each/bag) but felt sad when we ran out of them and the kids wanted more.

How could you say ‘No‘ to those cute lil faces! So maybe that’s a good tip to self, to make a few extra bags in the future for such events.

The recipe is really simple, just mix coconut flakes (unsweetened) with condensed milk, and crushed peppermint(you can use peppermint extract too).

Then make small to medium balls. Melt the candy melts (white chocolate) and dip the coconut balls using a fork or toothpick.

Tap on the edges and then place the dipped truffles on parchment paper/baking foil/cling wrap and let them set.

I coated them twice to give them a slightly chunkier and harder crust…but it’s as per your choice.

Then sprinkle some crushed peppermint over the top and you are good to go πŸ™‚

The Coconut Peppermint Truffles can be made a week in advance and kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator.


Do make these Coconut Peppermint Truffles as soon as you can for yourself / your next party or just wrap them in cute boxes as gifts and I guarantee, everyone would adore you.

They taste good and look super cute with those white chocolate and peppermint sprinkles – an absolute holiday treat.

Coconut Peppermint Truffles (4 Ingredients - 10 Minutes)


Coconut Peppermint Truffles (4 Ingredients & ready in 10 minutes) a lush-cool,Β minty-coconut mix covered in double chocolate and sprinkled with peppermint - that's insanely addicting. No-cook, just mix ingredients, coat in chocolate and they are ready in a jiffy.

Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 12 minutes


  • 2 Cups Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
  • 1/4 Cup Condensed Milk
  • 1 Bag White Chocolate Candy Melts
  • 5 Stick pf Peppermint Bark


  1. Place peppermint barks in a ziplock and pound with a rolling pin.
  2. In a bowl, mix coconut flakes, condensed milk, and 3 Tbsp of crushed peppermint.
  3. Mix evenly to form a smooth dough.
  4. Divide into equal portions and make round balls (I made 20 balls)
  5. Melt white chocolate candy as per package instructions (I melted mine in a microwave as per instructions)
  6. Place one ball on a fork dip in the melted chocolate candy and coat evenly.

  8. Place gently on parchment paper (you can use foil/cling wrap too)
  9. Complete the process similarly for all the balls.
  10. Once the truffles were hard, I dipped them a second time in the melted candy.
