Here's how easy it is...
  1. Place a non-stick saucepan over a medium heat and add the butter and Carnation Condensed Milk. Bring to a medium bowl, stir constantly until the mixture thickens and halves in volume. This should take about 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.

    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 😂
