These sweet coconut treats look and taste like christmas.

Makes 24 in a mini muffin tray.


  • 1 1/2 cup rice bubbles
  • 3/4 cup shredded or desiccated coconut
  • 2/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup glace cherries (or dried apricots)
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar
  • 100 grams copha (or coconut oil)


Finely chop the cherries. Using a blender or a food processor take the 3/4 cup of coconut and blend it until it turns into a dough like consistency.

Melt the copha in a small saucepan over a low heat. When it is completely melted remove from the heat and stir in the blended coconut.

In a bowl combine the rice bubbles, remaining shredded coconut, cherries and icing sugar. Pour the copha over the mixture and quickly stir it in. Press the mixture into a mini muffin tray and refrigerate for about an hour until they are hard. Lever them out of the tray and they are ready to serve. They will keep for about a month.
