ingredients

Milk
400 g, condensed, sweetened from 1 tin
butter
1 tbsp
Cocoa powder
3 tbsp
dessicated coconut
chocolate strands
Cocoa powder

Preparation

Heat the condensed milk in a saucepan.

Add the butter and cocoa and stir in well.

Bring to boil and simmer gently, stirring continually, for 8-10 minutes.

As soon as the mixture sticks to the spoon and comes away from the base of the pan, transfer to a bowl and allow to cool slightly.

As soon as the mixture is cool enough to handle, shape by hand into small balls (grease your hands with a little butter to prevent the mixture sticking).

Roll in coconut, chocolate strands or cocoa.

Place in the refrigerator to cool and set.
