Macapuno Candy Balls

4 cans (300 ml) condensed milk
2 cups macapuno (mutant coconuts) preserves
1 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup water
Coconut flakes (optional)

Add condensed milk to macapuno preserves. Cook in low heat. Halfway (after about 15 mins), remove from heat, add cornstarch (dissolved in a little water).
Blend well, then, continue cooking while stirring constantly. Cook until it thickens and mixture separates from pan. Cool for about 3 hours.
Shape balls, toss in coconut flakes and freeze for about 1 to 2 hours to set.
Note: When using bottled preserves, before shaping into balls, set aside cooked mixture for 4-5 hours (or overnight), covered with a cheese cloth. This would present your balls from becoming watery in a short time.
