Makes a total of 12 coco balls

Ingredients

  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 ½ cup milk, full fat
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 tsp dark coco powder
  • 3 tbsp desiccated coconut powder to roll the coco balls

Method 

  • Take a frying pan, heat, and dry roast the coconut powder for a few minutes. Keep stirring and make sure it doesn’t become brown.
  • The colour of the coconut after roasting should be a cream colour.
  • Take a large heavy bottom pan, add the milk and bring to boil.
  • Now add the coconut powder.
  • Stir continuously until the milk evaporates.
  • Now add the sugar, mix continuously keeping the flame on low.
  • The sugar will start to melt and make the mixture slightly watery.
  • Keep stirring keeping the flame on low until the moisture evaporates completely and mixture turns crumbly. The process so far takes about 20 minutes.
  • Cool the mixture slightly.
  • When it comes down to a warm temperature, roll the mixture to balls. You can roll them in desiccated coconut however this is optional. You should get about 12 balls from the mix.
  • You could add cashew powder or any of your favourite nut powders.

To make the Choco version

  • Add the coco powder after step 7 i.e. after you have added the sugar.
  • Continue to follow the recipe step 8-10.
  • Store in fridge for a 2 hours, so it gets little hard and sets a little.

Always serve this at room temperature or little cold. You can keep this in fridge for up to a week.
