Cocadas Filled With Manjarblanco And Nutella

Coconut macaroons, called cocadas in Peru, are one of the favorite sweets along the coast of our country. Like alfajores, cocadas are enjoyed at any time of the day and in any occasion. There are many varieties of cocadas, from big ones, to tiny ones, and sometimes they are filled with manjarblanco (Peruvian dulce de leche), like a sandwich.
