> 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
> 1 tbsp unsalted butter
> 1 tsp vanilla extract
> 1 cup white chocolate chips
> 2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut


To a medium pot, add the condensed milk, butter, and vanilla and heat on medium-low. Season with a pinch of salt and continuously stir with a spatula. Once the mixture is warm, add the white chocolate chips, stirring until chips are melted.
Continue cooking mixture 15 min., stirring constantly until thickened. To test if it’s thick enough, scrape the bottom of pot with a rubber spatula to see if the mixture holds for 2–3 sec.
Transfer mixture to a greased 8x8-inch baking dish. Chill 1 hour. Add the coconut to a plate. Once completely chilled, scoop 1 tbsp white chocolate mixture at a time to form a ball. Roll white chocolate balls in shredded coconut to coat. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
