Here's how easy it is...
  1. Place a non-stick saucepan over a medium heat and add the buttery baking spread and Carnation Condensed Milk. Bring to a medium boil, stir constantly until the mixture thickens and halves in volume. This should take about 10-15 minutes.
  2. Tip in the desiccated coconut and add the vanilla extract, mix through well and pour into a shallow dish. Chill in the fridge for 2 hours.
  3. Sprinkle the extra coconut onto a plate. Roll small amounts of chilled mix into balls then place on the coconut. Give them a shake until they are completely covered.
  4. Now they’ll look like little snowballs, so pop them into mini cupcake cases and finish them with a clove placed into the top.
  5. *recipe is based on 70% fat buttery baking spread.

    Can you use light condensed milk with this recipe? Have made it with full fat and absolutely loved them and was just wondering if i can use the light so we can get away with eating more 😂
