12 Days of Christmas 2017, Day 9: [Recipe] Coconut Mounds

Coconut mounds filled with cherries and chocolate chips. These little morsels make a cute little addition to your plate of sweets.

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but this year especially, I am keeping these recipes simple. I have a three year old – suffice to say that life is busy and mama’s tired. Not too tired to bake these though.
