Ingredients:

  • Grated coconuts – 1 1/2 cups
  • Bitter sweet chocolate – 100g
  • Sugar -3-4 teaspoons
  • Butter – 50g
  • Fresh cream – 1/2 cup

Method:

  1. Melt butter and fresh cream in a saucepan
  2. Add sugar and continue to stir on low heat
  3. Add the grated coconuts and once the mixture starts to thicken turn off the flame
  4. Allow it to cool, and make balls out of it and refrigerate overnight
  5. Melt the bitter sweet chocolate and dip each coconut ball in it and refrigerate for another 3-4 hours

Notes:

  1. Do not add excess butter or your balls wouldn’t get too crunchy.
