1 can coconut cream
1 handful of sultanas
2 eggs
2 cups SR flour

Soak the sultanas in the coconut cream overnight to plump up the sultanas. Then mix all of the ingredients together (you may have to add a little water if the mixture is too dry). You can add sugar and spices (or dessicated coconut if you want a stronger coconut taste). Spoon into muffin tins and bake at 180ºC for 20 mins.

250g chopped dried apricots
1 cup fruit juice
8 “weetbix/vitabrits”, crushed
1/4 cup honey
desiccated coconut to coat

1). Add apricots and juice to a saucepan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Mash/puree the apricots.
2). In a bowl, combine the weetbix, honey, and the cooked apricot mixture, and mix well.
3). Form mixture into small balls, and roll in coconut. Refrigerate until set.

— now I’ve tried this and I can’t say the results were great….. I like normal apricot balls, I didn’t like these – too weetbixey…. hubby thought they were good though.


Coconut Balls (Dreams)

I know these as “Dreams”, but other people might know them as Coconut truffles, or some other name.

1 packet of plain biscuits (like “Nice” or something similar)
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup of desiccated coconut
2 tablespoons of cocoa

Optional – Marshmallows

1). Blend the biscuits into crumbs. Either use a food processor, or place them in a freezer bag and bash them with a rolling pin (tons of fun!).
2). Mix the biscuits, cocoa, milk and 1/2 the coconut together, and form this into balls (Optional, form them around a marshmallow – you might want to cut the marshmallows into 4 and make smaller ones that are more bitesize though).
3). Roll the balls in the remaining coconut, and allow to set (put in the fridge).
4). Avoid eating them all until they have set
