In a small bowl combine 1 cup of coconut, maple syrup and coconut cream until a soft dough forms. Use your hands and shape the dough into 9 golf ball size balls. (If you feel the dough is too dry feel free to add an extra drizzle of coconut cream)
Push an almond or hazelnut into the center of each coconut ball and shape it back into a round sphere. Toss into the remaining coconut until coated all over. Set on a plate and refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving.
