Coconut Strawberry Valentine Sweets

Coconut Strawberry Sweets

   The last post was about delicious savoury balls that tasted like chips and dip.

But these are ones that are all about tantalising sugary sweet.

Cream cheese and almond meal are the base of these soft bite-size truffles.

Superb for those that do not enjoy chocolate-based treats, but still want that hit on their sweet palate.

Exquisite bites for the lover of coconut.


1/2 cup shredded coconut

1 and 1/2 cups of powdered (icing) sugar

1/4 cup (56.7 grams) of warm melted butter

1/2 cup (150 grams) of softened cream cheese

4 teaspoons of strawberry essence 

1 and 1/2 cups of almond meal

And an extra 1/2 cup of powdered (icing) sugar
