- ¼ cup sweetened condensed milk

Form about 1 tablespoon of mixture into ball shapes by rolling in your palms. Place onto a plate or small cookie sheet. When finished, place plate of coconut truffles into the refrigerator to chill for about 30 minutes. This will help to hold the shape and also to set the chocolate when you dip it.
