Coconut truffles

Coconut truffles 1

This week, it’s all about coconut. As a child, I was not the biggest fan but over the years, I’ve learnt to really enjoy its sweet and versatile flavour. For the first of the three coconut-based recipes, I’ve chosen something über simple to make. Only three ingredients are required for these coconut truffles and it only takes a few minutes to make (although it needs to rest for at least a couple of hours).

To make 20 coconut truffles, you need

Coconut truffles


  • 100 g dessicated coconut
  • 200 ml condensed milk
  • 20 hazelnuts
  • 75 g coloured sugar


  1. Mix together the coconut and the milk and leave the mixture to set in the fridge for at least a couple of hours.
  2. When the coconut mixture is ready, take a small amount, put a hazelnut in the middle then roll into a ball. Repeat the same process for the other 19 truffles.
  3. Finally, roll the truffles in coloured sugar or in any other coating of your choice and hey presto! For an alternative presentation just put a cake pop stick in each one and serve them as lollipops.
