Originally from the Pacific zones of the Valle del Cauca and Antioquia, both Cocadas con Panela and Panelitas can be prepared in the same manner. All you have to do is shred the coconut finer for the panelitas than for the cocadas and form into tablespoon-size balls. These cocadas keep fresh for up to a month if stored tightly in tin cans.
