Watch how to make coconut pralines in this quick video:
- 1/2 cup of wafers
- 2 oz of dessicated (shredded) coconut
- 1 oz of dried milk
- 1 tbsp rum
- 2 tbsp heavy cream
- 1/2 cup of white chocolate
- 18 pieces of almonds
Soak the almonds in warm water and peel. Crush the wafers into crumbs using a blender or a rolling pin, and melt the chocolate in a warm pan.
In a larger container mix: melted chocolate, desiccated coconut (leaving 2 spoonfuls for breading), crumbled wafers, powdered milk, rum and cream. Mix well and leave aside for 5-10 minutes, until it thickens.
Make balls of the size of a walnut from the mix, insert a peeled almond into each of them and bread in desiccated coconut. Place on a plate and cool in the fridge.
