I usually have allot to tell you all when I post..

Ingredients

 3 cups of Desiccated Coconut

3/4 cup Icing Sugar

 1/2 cup of Condensed Milk

500 grams White Chocolate

Method

Combine all ingredients (except chocolate) in a large bowl, mix to combine.

Roll into even balls, place on a baking tray

Refrigerate for 15 minutes

Melt white chocolate in a glass using a microwave set to defrost mode

Using a skewer dip each coconut ball into the melted white chocolate

For decoration tint a small amount of fondant icing pink. Roll icing out until 1mm thick, using a dusting of corn flour to prevent it from sticking to your working surface. I used a small flower cutter to cut out 18 flowers and used balling tool to give the flowers a little dimension. Allow to air dry for an hour. (The yellow centre is a small sprinkle that I attached with a little water)
