MACAPUNO BALLS RECIPE

I have been craving for this for a while now so here it goes. Not bad for first time. Chewy and sweet!


Ingredients:
2 cups macapuno strings preserves
1 1/2 can condensed milk
1/2 cup cornstarch 
1/3 cup water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1 cup coconut flakes


Cooking Direction:
Quick rinse macapuno strings in cold water. Allow excess water to drain. (optional...that will remove some of the sugar)
Using a sauce pan heat condensed milk in medium low fire till condensed milk thickens while stirring continuously.
Add macapuno strings, lower heat and keep stirring until mixture thickens.
Remove pan from heat. Add diluted cornstarch in water. Stir well and return to heat. Keep stirring until mixture thickens and separates from the pan.
Transfer to a cookie sheet brushed with butter. Allow to cool for maybe an hour or so.
Once mixture is cool, scope a tablespoon and shape into balls. Toss each ball to the coconut flakes and serve.
*Nice if you have those  candy colored wrapper then you can individually wrap your finished macapuno balls before serving.*
