For when you have a hankering for just a little bit of sweet! The recipe makes 6 coconutty chocolate balls; you can share up to three with a friend if you’re feeling very generous. These contain no oats (most recipes like this seem to) and they take about two minutes to make – but you do need to wait for a while for them to set. You can do it!!
As a side note: I can never wrap my brain around the fact that these are considered “cookies” in English, as to me they should clearly be filed under “candy”.
Coconut Poodles (makes 6)
50 ml sugar
20 g butter
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon milk
1-2 tablespoons peanut butter
50 ml desiccated coconut
Combine sugar, butter, cocoa powder and milk in a saucepan.
Bring gently to boil and simmer for 1 minute.
Add peanut butter and coconut; stir until well combined.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper and allow to set for about an hour.
