Torticas de Coco (Simple Mini Coconut Cakes)

These Torticas de Coco are a wonderful addition to your Halloween table, dinner party, or as a game-day dessert. They make a great middle of the week treat for the family as well. We love the taste and chewy texture of these mini coconut cakes. They are dense, but soft, while the coconut flakes add some crunch. Torticas de Coco are very easy to make and delicious.

Buen provecho!

Oh these sound like macarons (not the fad one, the coconut one). I love the Halloween paper you used as a mold. Very delicious.

How did you make the wrappers? My son is making them for his Spanish class’s Columbian culture day. They sound delicious!

I made these yesterday and they turned out really well. Thank you for the wonderful recipe. I had some extra cream cheese frosting from another thing I was making, so I put some on a few of these torticas and it worked really well.
