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.
