These traditional candies, a Cape Malay favorite, are made from coconut and are typically colored bright green or pink. Because they are soft and sticky, they are served in little paper containers, although this recipe uses small cupcake liners. Posted for Zaar World Tour 2006 as an African dessert recipe. Cooking time is approximate, and doesn't include time needed for the candy to set.
