For our Brazilian Carnival dinner, my friend John prepared the following recipe to share. These candies are easy to make and are like bites of dulce de leche with a touch of coconut!
recipe from Recipezaar
2 egg yolks
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 lb freshly grated coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cook in heavy saucepan, stirring constantly, until you can see the bottom of the pan.
Pour onto a plate and let cool completely.
Lightly grease the palm of your hands and form small balls.
Roll them in sugar and put in pretty paper cups.
