Dumplings with Chocolate and Coconut Flakes

This is a twist on the Brazilian “Bolinhos de Chuva”, which are mainly coated with cinnamon. To make ours equally irresistible, flavor the dough with vanilla and lemon and coat the dumplings with milk cocoa and coconut flakes. Now, when you’re done preparing these, seriously ask yourself if you made enough of them.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
