Apple Coconut Ladoo is a ladoo variety that is made of apple , coconut and sugar. This is a most simple and east dessert that can be made in very less time. Today thought of making some thing with apple as bored of usual desserts. While surfing came across many post of burfi. So tried a ladoo variety with apple and coconut. It is more tasty and all loved this ladoo in my family. Lets look at the method of making this simple and delicious ladoo..!!

My Notes :
1. Coating the ladoo with desiccated coconut is completely optional.
2. Instead of pistachio you can use any nuts of your choice.
3. Adjust the amount of sugar as per your taste.
4. You can also pour in greased tray and make it as burfi. If making burfi cook for three more mints extra.
