Coconut Pyramids

In these uncertain times, I’ve decided to repost a recipe from several years ago Not only are these easy but they can serve as a fun project with the kids. Coconut Pyramids are delicious treats that remind us of the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt. These were originally introduced to me by a beloved family member when I visited her in England. She told me that she made them every Passover.  In order to recreate her recipe, I took my “Awesome Coconut Macaroons” and changed them into cute little pyramids!  If you want to drizzle/dip with chocolate, or hazelnut spread, check out the tip section below.

Be well and stay safe.  Have a Happy Passover!
