My kids used to love singing ‘You put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up’ with full on Jamaican accents I might add. Hilarious and a great memory for me. Whenever I have lime and coconut, it takes me back to those good ole days with them in the back of the car while we barrelled along to somewhere belting out that song. BUT I digress! These truffles are not dairy free, though they do contain a good whack of coconut cream. Best to purchase AYAM brand coconut cream, refrigerate it over night and then just remove the top solid layer for the best texture in these little delicious and pretty awesome morsels...beautiful for gifting, but best kept in the fridge until you are ready to serve them or gift them. Merry Christmix!
