I am always looking for a great dessert for Easter or really any Spring holiday. These adorable banana coconut truffles are the perfect addition to your Easter dessert table or your Spring holidays.
Truffles are so easy to make and you can choose any variety that your family loves and whip them together with what you have on hand in the fridge or pantry.
The combination of banana and coconut is one that I love from our Caribbean vacations. Think of a pina colada but with a banana twist. Sometimes we would order a dirty banana cocktail which is like a mudslide but with banana liquor. If you haven’t tried it, be sure to the next time you are on holiday.
