Recreating Coconut Memories - Help, Please!

heather_kaye | Mar 29, 2012 12:20 PM

Hi! I'm trying to make something special for my mother this year, as she'll be celebrating her 30th Mothers' Day. Over the years, she's developed lots of dietary restrictions, so anything food related has to happen in a very narrow window of options - one of which is coconut!

My family was stationed in Athens when I was very young, but one of the memories I still have is eating what I recall naming "toasty conuts" - a coconut stick sold by street vendors (I found an image at the bottom of this page: http://www.travelbelles.com/2011/01/1... Apologies and thanks, Travel Belles!). My mom loved these things, and still talks about them, all these 25 years later. Does anyone 1) miraculously have a recipe or 2) have a more recent tasting memory that you're willing to share so that I have something to work from? Anything at all will be greatly appreciated!
