I am looking for a tasty dessert idea that is not too demanding and time-consuming. Try a proven trick that has worked in my family for many years.

I have a huge weakness for homemade baked goods. When I can prepare a delicious snack I enjoyed as a child, I am in heaven. This time will be no exception. In just a moment, I will share a beloved family recipe for a brilliant dessert that you can make in the blink of an eye with just a few simple ingredients.

My family has adored the brilliant chocolate-coconut cubes for many years, which hide a fluffy surprise in a delicious cake. My mum is the master of making them. I am now sharing the recipe with you since she shared it with me. It's simply too valuable not to reach a wider audience. Such sweets are irresistible—they are both delicious and charming simultaneously!

Dip the mini cakes in chocolate frosting and coat them in coconut. They will disappear from the table in the blink of an eye

  • 1 cup of sugar,
