Valentine’s Day is almost here! A day full of beauty, sweetness and love! I love this day and I want to be prepared for it early.

Raffaello candies are very suitable for this day! Of course, they can’t be exactly like the original candies, but they can be just as delicious and made by us personally, in our own kitchen. What could be better than to prepare something small, sweet, beautiful that brings a feeling of sweetness and happiness! I’ve been making this candy for years, but the truth is that this time I experimented a bit.

Usually, my children can’t wait to try them while I’m making them. I quickly rolled the candy in the shredded coconut and my kids immediately ate them.

This time, however, I wanted to get at least a little closer to the real thing, so I added a little bit of crumbled wafer sheets , which of course can not be very noticeable as it is not whole, but it gives us the feeling and taste that the original candy has. The white chocolate and shredded coconut contributed as well to getting my sweets closer to the original. After a short stay in the refrigerator, the chocolate becomes hard and makes the candies crispy and very unique. They are very tasty and equally easy to make.

Ingredients

  • 30 g butter
  • 300 ml condensed milk
  • 200 g shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 wafer sheet
  • 50 g roasted almonds
  • 250 g white chocolate
  • 100 g shredded coconut

Instructions

  • Put a pot on a medium low heat and melt the butter with the condensed milk. Stir in the shredded coconut and continue to stir for 5-10 minutes until the mixture begins to pull away from the edge of the pot. You should get something like a coconut dough. Put it in the freeze for about 1 hour.
  • Blend the wafer sheet.
  • Make a ball out of the coconut dough, put an almond inside and roll the ball in the crushed wafer crust.
  • Temper the white chocolate.
  • Dip the ball into the white chocolate and then roll it in the shredded coconut.
  • Store the candies in the refrigerator.

Bon Appétit!

      I just made these and had to use a scale for grams so it just took a bit of time. It was so messy. The whole process took more time than I thought it would. I used sugar free wafers with the cream in the middle because it’s all I had. I think it has too much coconut. I LOVE coconut but it was overwhelming. Still these were tasty! I probably won’t make them just for me, but will give out as Christmas gifts. They aren’t exactly like ferrero rocher, as I expected, but are still a nice sweet treat! I appreciate the time and effort you put into this recipe! ❤️☺️👏

      1. Thank you 🙂
