Take one teaspoonful of the mixture and roll it into a ball. If you find that the mixture is too sticky, add a bit of water to your hands. Once all the balls are formed, place in the freezer to harden for 20 minutes.

The mixture of almonds and coconut on the inside of these treats is perfectly chewy and delicious! I think the almonds give it a lovely subtle crunch!
