Coquitos Acaramelados - Celebrating my special day with latin flavors

I decided to celebrate my birthday with some latin flavors!, I found a really easy recipe made with coconut flakes, condensed milk and sugar!, a very sweet way to celebrate my day.

Here is the recipe:

Caramelized coconut (Coquitos acaramelados)
3 cups of coconut flakes
1 can of condensed milk
Sugar for the caramel
Mix the ingredients in a bowl and cook for 15 mins, stir with a wooden spoon, make tiny balls and place them in a plate, insert 1 toothpick in the center of ball. Make caramel in another bowl, Dip coconut balls in one quick motion; let excess caramel drip off. Place them in a plate and refrigerate. Enjoy!
I hope you like it!
