Heavenly sweet coconut balls | Kukskitchen

Sweets!! my favourite food, to make or to eat. They r so quick to prepare, well most of them, and sooooo yummylicious  too. With Diwali around the corner, kukskitchen tried a few of them too. There is an interesting story to share about one of them, let me leave that till I post its recipe ;-) It was sooo embarassing!

Anyways, anything to do with coconut and I get excited, yes me the Keralan wakes up again. One night I had the erge to eat some thing sweet and, as it always happens on such occasions, there was nothing sweet in the house, well, except for sugar and honey. I was so desperate for a sweet and it was past 10 at night already, and we were watching X-factor. My mind got to work, something very quick to make, with the ingredients I already have stock in house. Something that I can prepare during the ad break!
