Raspberry Coconut Balls
Total TimePrep: 30 min.
Makesabout 4 dozen
The picture is very attractive? Cookie is very sweet, too sweet for my family. Also 3 teaspoons of extract add almost a bitter artificial taste. Pink sanding sugar I purchased did not turn the coconut pink. Will use the concept of this recipe, but not these proportions. Will try tinting coconut with food coloring next time around.
Use unsweetened coconut flakes to cut down on the sweetness! It's readily available in most supermarkets now.
Easy to make. Came together quickly. Tasted good. Way too sweet.
Too much sweetened condensed milk, too much raspberry, using rum extract a waste of time. dough came out extraordinarily sticky, had to add cocoa to dry it out, still came out awful. Complete and total waste of money.
I am saving this recipe and will make for Easter brunch. @ Suzette......you mix the remaining coconut and pink sugar together and roll the cookies in that. There is no other sugar called for OR needed in this recipe.
I plan to makes these cookies for Easter. You don’t need sugar in the recipe because sweetened condensed milk is very sweet plus the sweetened coconut will be plenty of sweet believe me.
I don't see sugar in ingredient list and it looks like the coconut/sugar mixture is flavored/colored?
