Delicious Coconut Ball

The best recipe for delicious coconut balls, easy to prepare, irresistible taste.


  • 30 blanched almonds
  • 260ml (8.8 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 75 g skim milk powder (1/3 cup)
  • 30 g unsalted butter (2 Tbsp or 1/4 butter stick), at room temperature
  • 35 whole, blanched almonds
  • 220 g (~3 cups) + 130 g (1 1/4 cups) coconut flakes (I prefer using unsweetened coconut as the condensed milk is already sweet)


Roast the almonds:

Place the almonds in a large pan without the addition of any fat and roast, shaking the pan often until the almonds are golden on both sides. Don't leave them unattended, this will only take a few minutes, and you don't want them to get burned.

Delicious Coconut Ball

Immediately transfer the roasted almonds to a plate and let them cool.

Mix the condensed milk, milk powder and butter until all ingredients are combined.

Add 220 g coconut flakes and mix well. Chill for about 30 minutes, until firm enough to handle. If the coconut mixture is too sticky and you cannot easily form balls just add more coconut flakes.

Take approximately one teaspoon of the coconut mixture, place one almond in the middle and shape into small balls (the size of Raffaello candies).

Roll each candy in coconut and you’re done.

Store the candies in your refrigerator.

chilling time: 30-40 min
