“Lucia Ceresini, a friend from Brasil with whose husband I worked while in grad school, graciously shared her recipe with me. When the folks from South American found out I loved coconut, I was the happy recipient of their goodies and recipes.... each and every one of them delicious. BTW - the recipe title translates to: "Little Kiss of Bahia's Coconut"”
36 coconut balls (est)
