Ingredients
Coconut Mass with Chocolate
  • 2-3 tbs brown rum For the children version I use rum aroma!
  • 200-250 g powdered sugar/ iced sugar I like to use a little less sugar.
  • 1 sachet vanilla sugar
  • 1 pc lemon I use the abrasion and the juice.
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 tbs starch
  • 200 g soft coconut fat
  • 50 g walnuts I use optionally for binding!
  • 50 g cacao
Decoration
  • 1-2 EL cacao to roll around with!
  • 1 Pck. vanilla sugar
  • 1-2 EL chocolate flakes
Instructions
  • Mix the rum, icing sugar, vanilla sugar, lemon grater, lemon juice and salt in a bowl. Dissolve the ingredients, at Christmas time you can add gingerbread spice or cinnamon.
  • Stir in the cornflour, soft coconut fat, grated walnuts and cocoa and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Portion the mixture and form balls, then roll in a mixture of cocoa and vanilla sugar or in chocolate shavings.
Notes
You can store the praline mass in the refrigerator for several days and shape it into balls as needed.
I always place the finished pralines in praline cuffs so that they are easier to serve.
