1. In a bowl mix the sweetened condensed milk and 2 1/2 cups of dried coconut flakes together. Let the mixture sit for 15 minutes.
2. Make balls with the coconut mixture, insert an almond in the middle, and roll it in the remaining coconut flakes.
3. Put the coconut truffles in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours before serving.

4. In a serving plate, serve the coconut truffles cold.

We should be able to make balls with the coconut mixture, if it's too liquidy add more coconut flakes.

I just made these for my family and myself! I used macadamia nuts instead of almonds and the truffles turned out so delicious (and so easy to make)! Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

Hello, I would love to make these for my guests but I can't get a hold of molasses or condensed milk. Any other thing that I could use? Thank you!

Wow! The sight of the these coconut truffles itself is so inviting and indulging that I can't just wait to taste them! :) I think, there will be no need for extra sugar as the coconut grates and also sweetened condensed milk will impart enough sweetness; however, I would love to spinkle these coconut truffles with a bit of confectioner's sugar.. and yumm it goes into ma tummy! Well, Catalin, are these truffles made fluffy and soft or are they a lil hard?
