Macapuno Soft Candy Balls

Hello, hello, hello! How are you? I hope everybody’s doing fine while I was away:). Yeah! you heard it right I was on a holiday for just a couple of weeks last June . I know it’s August now but the jet lag still lingering on me that I was too lazy to  write 😦  until my very dear friend Jhuls of  thenotsocreativecook invited me to write   a guest post for her blog and that motivated me to start blogging again 🙂 This is also my first time to write a guest post and I’m a truly honored to do that. Thank you Jhuls for your sweet invitation:)

Anyway, let me tell you first about my recent holiday.  It was just a quick vacation actually but I do enjoyed it spending time with my family and ate all the foods that I missed in the Philippines. 🙂 My dearest friends  have traveled for how many hours just to see me and that made me feel loved  so I’m taking this opportunity to say thank you to my lovely friends Rya & Julie. Your presence made my holiday extra special♥♥♥.


Yes! A strong friendship doesn’t need daily conversation; doesn’t always need togetherness. As long as the relationship lives in the heart, true friends will never part and that’s how I feel towards Jhuls too . I’ve known her  since our primary years and became best of friends  but parted ways when we were in high school but the friendship we had will always be cherished and treasured by me.♥

And now let me share to you  this simple recipe I have found. The main ingredient is  coconut sport (known as MACAPUNO in the Philippines where it is primarily produced). I had this macapuno sitting on my pantry for a while. I normally add this to my cassava cake or ube cake but I don’t feel like baking  and   it’s nearly out of date so I need to use it before it will be futile. While searching for a recipe that will use macapuno Google brought  me here on “Nette Cooking.


1 bottle of sweetened macapuno preserves
1 can of condensed milk
1/2 cup cornstarch (disolved in 1/2 cup of water)

                                           coconut fine flakes(desiccated coconut)

                                           colored cellophane

For the complete procedure please watch the video here on YouTube.  These candy balls are perfect for Christmas treats to your friends and family. Hope you will try it.

Enjoy! 🙂
