Looking for a tasty dessert idea that is not too demanding and time-consuming to prepare? Try a proven trick that has worked in my family for many years.

I have a huge weakness for homemade baked goods. When I can also prepare a delicious snack I used to enjoy as a child, I am in heaven. This time will be no exception. In just a moment, I will share a beloved family recipe for a brilliant dessert you can make in the blink of an eye with just a few simple ingredients.

My family has adored chocolate-coconut cubes for many years, which hide a fluffy surprise in the form of a delicious cake. My mom is the master of making them. Since she shared the exact recipe with me, I am now sharing it with you. It's simply too valuable not to reach a wider audience. Such sweets are irresistible—they are both delicious and charming at the same time!

Dip the mini cakes in chocolate frosting and coat them in coconut. They will disappear from the table in the blink of an eye

Ingredients:

Cake:

          
  • 6 eggs

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) of butter
  • 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
