Chocolate Coconut Clouds


Chocolate Coconut Clouds

I call these little desserts "clouds" because they're so soft and fluffy yet also moist, truly melting in your mouth. Super-easy and quick to make, these are great after-school snacks or after-dinner desserts. I just love the combination of chocolate, cardamom, and cayenne!
