This is an all time favorite of Jamaican's. Just about every Jamaican restaurant or store sell these. I decided to add them as Horderve's at a party and I was shocked to find only crumbs left. If you like coconut, you will love Coconut Drops.

How To Make jamaican coconut drops

  • 1

    Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper or just use cooking spray. Take a serving spoon or ice cream scooper to yield one drop on a baking cookie sheet. Place 1 inch apart. Wait until it's cool and hard to eat. Enjoy!
