A recipe for delicious homemade sweets is dedicated to all the sweet tooth and lovers of tasty. These carrot balls are one pleasure! When you try them, you immediately realize that it’s good to eat: it’s so delicious and simple! They are fragrant, sweet, perfect for our children from an early age. In any case, their growing body needs glucose, and such a candy is much more useful than purchased, where there may be various trans fats and other additives. Therefore, on “Very Delicious” I want to lay out a simple and very tasty recipe on how to make homemade sweets with my own hands.
- carrots - 2 kilograms;
- lemon - 1 piece;
- sugar - 0.5 kilograms;
- cognac - 1 tablespoon (optional);
- coconut flakes - 150 grams;
- vanilla sugar - 1 sachet.
Delicious homemade sweets. Step by step recipe
- Grate peeled carrots on a fine grater.
- Grate zest with lemon: take only the yellow top.
- Put the carrots in a pan, add sugar, mix and put on medium (slightly lower) fire. Stir occasionally, cook until smooth, fairly thick slurry. From this mass, we will sculpt candies, so by consistency it should look like jam (in the video you can examine in more detail). In time, it will take approximately 40-60 minutes, depending on the juiciness of your carrot.
- Add the vanilla sugar, lemon zest, brandy to the warm mass (if we don’t add sweets for children), mix and leave to cool. The mass must be at such a temperature that it can be taken by hand (either completely cooled or warm).
- Roll out a carrot ball the size of a walnut from the cooled mass and brew it in coconut flakes to make candy. In the same way, make all the other sweets, laying them on a plate.
- Send the finished carrot sweets with coconut in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes, for complete cooling.
If desired, in the middle you can put any nut, a few raisins or other dried fruits. And I really like these homemade sweets stuffed with cottage cheese. It is very simple to make: take 150-200 grams of well-wrung cottage cheese, add a pinch of salt, 1-2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 yolk and knead well. Adjust the sugar for yourself, since the candy is already so sweet, I try to make the filling not too sweet, and you rely on your taste. We roll small cottage cheese balls, put it on a plate and also send it in the refrigerator for an hour or in the freezer for 15-20 minutes to freeze a little. And when we cook the candies, in the middle of the carrot ball with our hands we make a deepening and lay out the curd filling, and then everything according to the recipe.
