A can of condensed milk
Present in pretty much every Brazilian recipe!About 250g of desiccated coconut granules
One spoon of spread or butter
Granulated sugar and cloves to decorate
You can also use more dessicated coconut to finish it (as in the picture), but if you're not on a diet, I suggest to stick to the sugar, it adds another texture to it.
Mix the condensed milk, the butter or spread and the 250g of coconut and cook it on a low to medium hob. Keep stirring, you will notice that the mix is thickening. When it is not sticking anymore to the sides and bottom of the pan, you can transfer it to a plate.
Wait until it is cool enough for you to make the little balls. Then, it is up to you, you can either roll them on the sugar or in more coconut and add the clove as a final touch, for that little bit more flavour and colour.
Preparing time: About 15 minutes
