Using sweetened condensed milk makes these five-ingredient treats quick to put together. A perfect fit for a Diwali feast, these sweet indulgences will disappear in no
time. If desired, coat them with finely chopped cashews, pistachios or walnuts instead of coconut. Serve in candy cups.

Ingredients

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped dried apricots
  • 1 tablespoon rose water
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

Method

In small saucepan, cook condensed milk over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in bowl, mix together 2 cups of the coconut, apricots, rose water and cardamom. Scrape in condensed milk, mixing well; let cool for 5 minutes.

Shape by heaping 1 tbsp into balls. Spread remaining coconut on plate; roll balls in coconut to coat completely. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)
