The Easiest Coconut Clusters Ever


When I was young, my family would go to Phillips Candy in Boston. We’d always always always get coconut clusters. Maybe it’s nostalgia for me.

Maybe it’s just because they’re that good, but something about them just makes me so happy.

Two ingredients, 5 minutes prep + 30 minutes in the fridge make this the easiest and tastiest Valentine’s gift. And it’s totally something the kids can help make to maybe give to their grandparents, aunts, uncles, or teachers.

Makes 12 clusters
