Coconut Ladoo is one of my favorite coconut dessert recipe to date. Just a few ingredients, a few minutes in the kitchen and you are ready for a heavenly experience with soft-on-bite rich coconut sweet. Coconut Laddu make for perfect after meal nibbles or a party dessert.
Coconut works beautifully in sweetened condensed milk. You can also make excellent chocolate truffles with it substituting the cream.
Even the ones on a diet cannot resist this delicious temptation. Get into your kitchen to make this ridiculously easy to make coconut Ladoos and you won’t regret it. 🙂
