Carrot Balls (Havuclu Toplar)
¾-1 cup sugar
~200 gr Petit Beurre tea biscuits
½ tsp cinnamon (optional)
½ cup walnut, crushed (optional)
1/2 cup coconut, shredded
Peel the carrots and shred in a food processor. Take shredded carrots and sugar in a pot. Cook for about 15 minutes or until carrots get soft. Stir occasionally. Then, turn the heat off and let it cool for a while.
Meanwhile crush the biscuits in the food processor. Add crushed biscuits in carrot sugar mixture. Also add crushed walnuts and cinnamon (optional). Mix them all together. Use your hands to make small balls a little bigger than cherry. Dip them in coconut or you can serve them with different coatings or just plain.
