  1. Add the contents of both condensed milk cans, the two tablespoons of butter/margarine and the 300 grams of grated coconut in a small pan.
  2. After that take the pan to the stove and mix the ingredients until you have a creamy mixture. It is essential to mix the ingredients continuously in order to avoid the contents sticking to the bottom of the pan. You will let it cook for about 15 minutes.
  3. Once it becomes an even mixture, let it sit off the stove because you will need to make small balls using your hands. And we do not want accidents after all!
  4. Once the creamy mixture is cooler, grease your hands with a little bit of butter or margarine and make small balls. You will grab around a teaspoon of the mixture for each ball. You can make smaller or bigger balls. It only depends on how you like it to be.
  5. Once you have the little balls ready, pass them either on the crystal sugar or on some grated coconut (that is why it is important for you to have these as thin as possible). Once the balls have been put in the crystal sugar or on the coconut, finalize the recipe by adding one clove to the top of the ball like bonbon.
