Almond and coconut truffles


I had found a little note with this recipe lost in the middle of my recipe book, and so I couldn't remember where exactly it was from! These little almond and coconut truffles are delicious anyway, and quite easy to make.


160 gr. almonds peeled and crushed
90 gr. sugar
1 egg yolk
2 tsp. cream
100 gr. shredded
desiccated coconut

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until you get a dough which is firm. If you find it dry, add another tablespoon of cream. Pour some sugar onto a plate and with your hands mold small balls and then roll them in the sugar. Place them in paper liners and chill until ready to serve.


  1. Coconut and almond is such a yummy flavor combo. These look really good.

  2. Olha eu aqui de novo, rsrs. I love coconut!!!

  3. Delícia... Huuuuuummmmm!!!!!
