Microwave Coconut Balls




Ha, the end of another year has come. So here is a simple and a sweet way to say goodbye to 2010 and welcome 2011. This is an easy sweet that can be done in the microwave. It is essentially my version of Brazilian kisses. You can use sparkling sugar to make it attractive for the little ones. This can be made a couple of days ahead. So a huge hit in parties.. Hopefully you will try this in one of your parties.

Ingredients:
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (See notes)
- 1/2 tsp butter
- sparkling sugar/coarsely ground unsweetened coconut flakes (optional)

Method:
1. In a microwave safe bowl add the butter, condensed milk and the coconut flakes. Give it a good mix. You need not reduce the power of your microwave. Start with 3 minutes. Remove and stir. Now cook for another minute. Remove stir. Do this till your mixture becomes one big lump. It took me about 7 min in my microwave oven. Just be sure you remove and stir it frequently.

2. Cool this and roll them into balls. If it is too sticky apply little bit water when you roll these. You can then roll these balls in sparkling sugar or the ground coconut flakes. Arrange them in a cute muffin paper liners and serve.

Notes - I had to buy my coconut flakes in a health store and I used Bob red Mill Try to use the unsweetened variety. The sweetened kind makes these ball really sweet. Sometime you do not get the right size flakes. If it is too big then just give it a whirl in your mixer.
