Recipe – ‘Spuds’

Here is a simple recipe that I made tonight – they are basically sweet coconut balls rolled in coco powder which makes them look like freshly dug up potatoes (Spuds) – NOT for people on diets!  Perfect for sugar addicts.

1 can of sweetened condensed milk

1 bag of desiccated coconut

1 cup of Icing (Confectioners) Sugar

Cocoa Powder

In a large bowl,  mix together the condensed milk and the coconut (start off with 1.5 cups of coconut, then add more for individual tastes – I like about 4 heaped cups).  Then add the icing sugar – add this a quarter of a cup at a time until the whole mix becomes thick with a consistency like play dough.

Pour some of the cocoa powder onto a plate.  Wet your hands and take ping pong ball size spoonfuls of the mix and roll it in your hands until it becomes a ball, then roll this in the cocoa powder until the ball is coated. (The wet hands stops the mix from sticking to them – if you wear rings I recommend you remove them before you do this step).

Place these onto a plate and let them sit in the fridge for about an hour to set.  Then they are ready to eat 🙂
