Moroccan food is one of the most exquisite and diverse in the entire world. Located right at the mouth of the Mediterranean, the country and its cuisine has been influenced by a variety of different peoples, ranging from the Romans and Arabs to the French, Spanish and Persians. Moroccan food is known for having flavorful spices, herbs and lots of olive oil. Some of their staple foods include figs, almonds, lamb, couscous and fish. For dessert, it is most common to eat fruit; however, sweets are just as popular.

I had been searching for a while for a simple and scrumptious truffle recipe. Luckily, I stumbled upon this amazing Moroccan coconut dessert!
