  • 2 packages (15 count, each) Athens Mini Phyllo Shells

  • 1/2 cup silvered almonds, chopped
  • 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350⁰F. Place empty shells on a baking sheet and bake for 3–5 minutes. Cool. In a medium mixing bowl, combine coconut, confectioners sugar, almonds and sweetened condensed milk. Form mixture into 30 – 1 1/2” loose balls.

Gently press one ball into each of 30 shells. Gently push candy eyes into each ball close to the top of the shell.

In a small bowl, briefly whisk the spreadable fruit or preserves.

Using a small pastry brush, “paint” blotches and lines of the spreadable fruit on the coconut balls around the candy eyes.
