Fruit Bon Bons


For two flavors, divide the coconut mixture in half before doing gelatin; add a different gelatin flavor (one 4 serving size package) to each half.


  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 (7 ounce packages flaked coconut (5 1/3 cups)
  • 1 (8 serving size) box fruit flavor gelatin (any flavor)
  • 1 cup ground blanched almonds
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • Food coloring (optional)


  1. In large bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, coconut, 1/3 cup gelatin, almonds, extract and enough food coloring to tint mixture.
  2. Chill 1 hour or until firm enough to handle.
  3. Using about 1/2 tablespoon mixture for each, shape into 1-inch balls. Sprinkle remaining gelatin onto wax paper; roll each ball in gelatin to coat. Place on wax paper-lined baking sheets; chill.
  4. Store covered at room temperature or in refrigerator.

Yield: about 5 dozen
