INGREDIENTS

Condensed milk                    - half tin ( or according to your sweet)
Cashews or Almonds             


PREPARATION



  • Take the desiccated coconut in a bowl and mix it with  the condensed milk ( be careful while mixing that we need a dough not  a cream).
  • Mix well and keep refrigerated for 1 hour.
  • This process is to soak desiccated coconut well in the condensed milk or milkmaid .
  • Now make small balls with this soaked desiccated coconut placing a cashew or badam inside it.
  • Then roll it in  desiccated coconut , which is kept for garnishing .
  • Again refrigerate for half an hour for better taste.
  • Raffaello candy is ready.



MAKING DESICCATED COCONUT AT HOME 
  • Take the finely grated coconut and spread it evenly in a baking sheet.
  • Place it in the oven and bake over low heat for about 5 - 10 minutes only.
  • This removes the moisture content in the grated coconut.
  • Duration depends upon the size and moisture content of the coconut . so check the status of the grated coconut in the oven frequently.
  • When it becomes brittle , remove from the oven.
