Last Saturday I made these coconut delights to take to my friend’s house. We had these for dessert and they are just divine. This dessert/snack is Colombian and most popular on the coast. A soft, sweet, delicious cookie like treat that’ll make your co-workers, friends, and family go YUMMY! This recipe is easy and lasts in a tight sealed container at room temperature for a week.
Makes for 20-30 treats (depending on size)
- 4 Cups Sweetened Flake Coconut (14 oz package)

In a medium-sized pot add in the coconut flakes, sugar, ground cloves, and lime juice. Stir with a wooden spoon to combine. Cook over medium-high heat stirring from time to time for about 25-30 minutes.
