Step 1 of 4
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.
Step 2 of 4
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.
Step 3 of 4
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.
Step 4 of 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.
