    Hello, really interested in this recipe, however can someone tell me how much is 1 jar of condensed milk exactly? 250ml, 200ml? Or in grams..

  2. Elena and Alfredo Says:

    Hello Mind! 1 jar condensed milk – 200ml

    I am confused…Step 1 says to use a steamer basket and step three says to “remove basket…” But the melted butter & milk from step one will go through the basket and the coconut flakes from step 2 would not. I have Googled to see if I was mistaken as to what a steamer basket was (or if there was some other item called a steamer basket I was unaware of) – could find anything that looked like it would work. By chance did you mean a double boiler?

    Raffaello is one of my favorite candies and would love to try this… I just can’t see how it would work. Please explain.

    typo… should have said “– could not find anything that looked like it would work.”

    Sorry should have said “– could NOT find anything that looked like it would work.”

  6. Elena and Alfredo Says:

    Jack, sorry for the mistake in the recipe text and thank you for your comment! What we meant here is a water bath, or a bain-marie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bain-marie).

    Hello, Thanks for recipe.

    But I live in Georgia and there isn’t Mascarpone cheese

    what can I do?

  8. Elena and Alfredo Says:

    No problem – if you dont have Mascarpone, it can be replaced with whipped double cream, because, mascarpone cheese made ​​from cream.
