Add all ingredients except for second amount of coconut to a stand mixer or food processor in order given and blend to combine evenly, OR mix ingredients in a mixing bowl in the order given, stirring after each addition.
Allow to sit 10 minutes.
With wet hands, shape into balls of approximately 1 inch, roll each one in some more coconut to coat, and place on a platter to serve.
Ten minutes seems to be the optimal resting time before shaping the batter into balls. Any longer, and it might become a little too dry to work with easily. Store leftover balls, covered in an airtight container, in the refrigerator for up to a week.
