Recipe: Coquitos (Coconut Dessert)

Hey everyone!

Today I have a super-delish and even easier recipe for all my lovelies!

The other night we went over to my in-laws’ house for dinner, and my mother-in-law had made coquitos. I had no idea what they were, but waited paitently through dinner and when it was finally time for dessert… oh-my-gosh-mind-blown!

Basically, coquitos are sweet coconut balls. My mother-in-law explained how easy they are to make, and I just had to try!

So here’s the recipe. They are quick and easy (though I might add, pretty messy!) Try them out the next time you are looking for a two-ingredient, cheap and easy dessert, and enjoy!


– (1) bag of sweetened coconut

– (1) 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk


– Pour the bag of coconut into a bowl

– Pour in most of the can of sweetened condensed milk (leave about 2 – 4 oz. in the can- you don’t need the whole thing)

– Mix together with a spatula

– Use a spoon to scoop the mix in balls onto a greased cookie sheet

– Cook at 350 degrees for 25 mins.
