A basic cocada recipe: coconut shreds are coated in sugary syrup and baked until crisp, golden, and delicious.

They are oven baked but are served at room temperature to provide their chewy and soft texture.

In Mexico cocadas are sold not only as artisan candies from shops, but commonly on the streets, out of baskets, and particularly on the beaches, by men or women who carry them on large aluminum trays.
