DIRECTIONS

  • To get the tsoureki crumbs, slice any dry tsoureki loaf you may have or any leftover pieces, chop and then grind it in a small chopper until you have 6 cups which you place in a large bowl.
  • Add the almonds and coconut and mix well.
  • Add the condensed milk and mix carefully, you should have a moist mixture which easily sticks together, if it is too wet add more crumbs.
  • Make small balls and roll in coconut.
  • Variations: You can add some finely chopped glace fruits or fruit peel.
  • Hazelnut meal can be used instead of almond meal.
  • You can roll the balls in white sprinkles or dip them in white chocolate instead of the coconut.
