    1. Mix sugar, coconut, egg yolks, butter and milk together in a saucepan; cook over low heat, stirring all the time, until the mixture starts to pull away from the sides of the pan.
    2. Remove from heat and pour into a lightly greased dish to allow it to cool slightly. Then, using a teaspoon, fill each prune with the coconut mixture.
