Are you tired of desserts yet? I hope not because this one I’m sharing with you today is one of my new obsessions.
I’ve always liked the flavor of condensed milk and as you well know, sweetened condensed milk makes a lot of stuff taste better. Condensed milk on a thick, fluffy slice of buttered golden toast (my favorite), condensed milk drizzled on top of shaved ice, condensed milk in tapioca milk tea, condensed milk in Chocolate Coconut Cream Truffles….etc
I love truffles and It’s been months since I’ve had one, but the other day I got a sudden, random craving. So I did what any food blog owner should do: I figured out how to make them.
Shredded coconut, chocolate chips, and Sweetened condensed milk ( makes for a moist coconut center you’ll love) are all you need to make these easy and decadent treats. You could always use white chocolate instead, but my heart belongs to milk or dark chocolate.
You coooould make them into bite-sized pieces, does that mean You’ll eat less? Absolutely not.
In a large bowl, combine coconut, powdered sugar, sweetened condensed milk, and melted butter. Mix well. Use a 1 oz ice cream style scoop to scoop balls on parchment paper. (You could use hands and roll between palms into teaspoon-sized (or a little larger)
Place balls in the freezer for an hour or two until hardened.
In the top of a double boiler or microwave, melt the 3/4 of milk chocolate chips.
Dip each frozen coconut ball into the melted chocolate and shake off excess chocolate.
Place the dipped truffles on the sheet into the refrigerator or freezer for 15 minutes or until the chocolate is set.
Melt the remaining chocolate chips according to package directions.
Place in a small baggie and cut a small hole in one corner.
