This is a Homemade Raffaello Coconut Almond Confections recipe, a very popular snack in Europe. Super easy to make and delicious.
Raffaello Coconut Almond Confections are a popular item in Europe. You can find them in stores around the United States also, but they are not as popular as overseas.
The original confections are spherical wafers filled with a white milk cream and white blanched almonds. They are tossed in coconut flakes and are delicious.
How to make Homemade Raffaello Coconut Almond Confections:
First of all, mix the coconut flakes with the condensed milk, until smooth. Then, using your wet hands, grab a dollop of the mixture and roll it between your palms as a ball.
Hide a toasted almond in the middle of the confection. Finally, toss the confection in coconut flakes and place it in a candy paper. Continue until you finish the entire batch.
These homemade confections should be refrigerated or frozen. They taste delicious right out of the freezer, therefore it would be great to make them in advance and serve as a treat later (it is a wonderful gift for the holidays also).
