Raffaello (coconut balls)

Dessert
1 servings
9 min
Very Easy
Still capture the general taste and idea. These are probably the only dessert ever crave, and are, luckily, very easy to make.

Ingredients

Number of serving: 1
125 ml or 1/2 cup water

250 g/9 oz butter or margarine

400 g/14 oz sugar

400 g/14 oz powdered milk

250 g/9 oz dried shredded coconut

100 g/4 oz toasted almonds or hazelnuts

Preparation

  • Combine water, butter/margarine (margarine might work better because it has a less distinct flavor) and sugar in a pot and boil.
  • Turn off the heat, add the powdered milk and 200 g coconut (leave 50 g/2 oz for decoration) and stir them in.
  • If there are any lumps left, use a handheld mixer to break them. Leave in the refrigerator to cool.
  • Roll 1 inch balls with palms, placing an almond in the center of each ball, and then roll the balls in leftover shredded coconut.
