Coconut Balls

prep 15 mins, plus cooling and setting cook 20 mins
  • 250 g (8 oz) grated fresh coconut, or desiccated coconut softened with a little cold water
  • 300 g (10 oz) sugar
  • 300 ml (½ pint) water

Mix the coconut, sugar and measured water together in a saucepan and then stir on a low heat until the syrup has almost all evaporated.

Put 12 tablespoonfuls of the mixture on a metal baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper, shaping each spoonful into a ball as you go.

Allow to cool for about 1 hour to harden the outside a little, leaving the insides soft.
