Let's Make Coconut Bon Bons 

Make the coconut kisses: In a medium non-stick pan, mix the condensed milk and the butter, and then cook over medium-low heat (large burner) or medium (small burner), stirring constantly, until the mixture reduces, thickens, and starts to darken a little.

Step 1

Remove the pan from the heat and mix the vanilla extract and grated coconut until obtaining a homogeneous coconut mixture.

Step 2

Spread the mixture on a greased plate and let it cool to room temperature before starting to roll it into balls.

Step 3

Make sure to lightly grease your hands! Use 1/2 tablespoon as a measurement to form coconut balls!
