These child-friendly petit fours make dazzling gifts to give to loved ones. They are quick and easy to make and kids can help out with almost every step of the process. They need to be made as close to giving as possible, as they will only be at their best for three to four days. Once you’ve made them be sure to keep them in an airtight container in the fridge to help them stay as fresh as possible.

  1. Melt the butter on the hob or in the microwave and leave to cool slightly.
  2. Ask your little helpers to combine the desiccated coconut (475g), popping candy, condensed milk and icing sugar in a bowl. Stir in the melted butter and mix again.
  3. Divide the mix into lots of different portions and then shape into small balls. Roll them in the remaining desiccated coconut (75g) and store in the fridge until set – they will keep in an airtight container for 3-4 days. Once ready to serve, wrap in decorative foil wrappers and share with family and friends.
