Qumbe (East African Coconut Candy)

Recently I was planning an African-themed party, and I came across a recipe for a Somali snack by this name. The first version I tried was a little too sweet for me, and the consistency was all wrong for rolling into balls. I made some adjustments in the proportions, and this is the result. Yum!

  3. Roll coconut mixture into bite-size balls. Pour 1/4 cup grated coconut into a bowl and roll balls in coconut until coated. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 15 minutes.
