  • 200 gr. coconut flakes
  • 100 gr. raw almond nuts
  • vanilla

Directions:

Put butter, vanilla and condensed milk into a susepan and melt the mixture.

Add a little bit from the coconut flakes. Put the pan in a cool place for an hour. Just for minute or roast the almond nuts in an oven or in a frying pan (to dry them).

When ready insert an almond nut into a small portion of coconut mixture and form small balls.

Then roll the balls in dry coconut flakes.

Wait 3-4 hours before serve (should keep them in the refrigerator).
