Rate this recipe 4/5 (19 Votes)


  • 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



Step 1

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 your palms, placing an almond in the center of each ball, and then roll the balls in leftover shredded coconut.
