21st Stop: Bolivia
I cannot stop eating these cocadas from Bolivia.
They are that good.
These Cocadas, also known as "Coconut Candies," are a common treat in Bolivia.
As you may know by now, I am all about the easiest international dessert and baked good recipes. This one, from here, fits the bill. Plus - these are so incredibly tasty in a chewy, sweet, toasty coconut-y way. Little Bakery Travelers could help make these and they only take about 20 minutes to bake. Do check your treat 20 minutes in. The first batch I baked for 25 minutes and that was too long. Still good, but probably too crispy. The second batch, some seen in photos here, needed only 20 minutes and were like coconut heaven.
