Besitos de Coco

You can find Puerto Rican Coconut kisses with more ingredient but I’m going to say that no matter how you create Besitos de Coco the end result will be the same. They will taste delicious. With this simple recipe I add a dash or so of Almond extract to add more flavor. Islanders use coconut in many recipes.

14 ounces sweetened condensed milk (1 can)
14 ounces shredded Coconut Flakes (5 1/2 cups)
2 teaspoon of Vanilla extract
1 dash of Almond extract (Optional)

Heat the oven to 325° F
Line baking sheets with parchment paper
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and blend well
Drop by teaspoonfuls to the baking sheets
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges
Remove to rack to cool
