This simple confection is heavenly, especially if you are a coconut lover like I am. In my experience, freshly grated coconut is really the only way to go with this recipe, though fresh frozen will also work. Don’t use sweetened shredded coconut or dried coconut however—the consistency just won’t be the same. Sometimes this sweet is called “chip chip,” after the popular local clams, but no one is sure why since one does not resemble the other.
