Food is not our God, but a blessing from Him. So in moderation, we enjoy sweet treats – especially during this time of year. I have one special treasured cookie recipe that my boys melt for each year. It never seems to fail that when the first snow blankets the earth outdoors, one by one they come asking for polvorones. A special Spanish almond cookie that holds my own memories of my family from Spain.
These cookies only take about five minutes to make and taste just like candy when covered in melted chocolate. They’re lovely to make for family gatherings, or to fill in tins for cookie exchanges.
Once the chocolate is melted, dip the coconut balls into the melted chocolate and sprinkle them with the shredded coconut. Allow the chocolate to harden by placing the coconut balls back into the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes.
