Ingredients

8 oz. condensed milk
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons dry coconut flakes

Directions

1. Add condensed milk and butter to a saucepan. Stir constantly over low heat until mixture bubbles, about 10 minutes.

3. Take mixture off the heat and add food coloring to achieve desired color. For a light pink shade use one teaspoon of liquid coloring.

4. Transfer mixture to a bowl and allow to cool in the fridge until set.

5. Once set, lightly grease palm of your hands with a little butter and scoop balls out of the mixture. Roll to form balls and coat in the sugar pearls.

6. Transfer coated balls to a paper cupcake liner.

7. Decorate each truffle with a fondant sugar paste rose made using a fondant mold. Use a little icing or corn syrup to stick roses to truffles.
