In a bowl, use a spoon to mix Cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. 2. Mix well, until a smooth, consistent frosting is obtained.

Generously coat cake (or brownie or soft-cookie) cubes with glazing and shape them into small balls.

Roll the balls in the grated coconut to completely cover them, then fine-tune their shape by rolling them between your hands.

Spread excess coconut onto the bottom of a large, flat pan and distribute the balls.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.


Insert lollypop sticks and tie bows with ribbon.
