Coconut Chocolate Covered Stuffed Fig Balls make a beautiful presentation on any holiday cookie plate, are always a hit at parties, Christmas cookie exchange, and gift-giving.
• When wrapping the figs with chocolate and coconut layers, it helps to moisten your hands lightly. Some grease residue on the hands is normal.
• Use as little of the coconut and chocolate mixtures as possible to cover the fig balls by stretching and pushing it around. Otherwise, you'll end up with enormous candy and extra figs.
• Slice the balls with a serrated knife, wiping the blade off between each cut.
• Roll each ball into the coconut right after coating it with the chocolate layer (as opposed to coating them all and then dipping in the coconut). If you wait, the frozen layer will cool the chocolate layer quickly and the coconut won't stick to it as much.
