Christmas in the Caribbean gives the holiday a tropical flavor.
Besitos de Coco
2 cups grated coconut (bagged will do)
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 cup water
Combine the coconut and water in a medium pot. Bring to a boil. Add the brown sugar and stir. Cook on low heat until the sugar melts and the texture is thick and very sticky. Drop by tablespoons on a greased cookie sheet or on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper or parchment. Let the cookies cool down.
