White Coconut Sweets (Kashaato) Bonbons Blancs à la Noix de Coco

White Coconut Sweets (Qumbe Cad) Bonbons Blancs à la Noix de Coco


This is one of the most requested recipes and it is a popular sweet in Somalia. Unlike the previous recipe that we posted for Coconut Sweets, this one is more like candy and it is easy to cut into any shape you desire.

When we set out to make this recipe, we remembered a wedding we have been to where they were included as part of a package of different types of sweets that was given to each guest. We liked them very much and lucky for us, the person who made them was our friend, Zeinab Ahmed. She came over and prepared this recipe for us.

There was one minor issue, however. Only she knew how to make these sweets and she told us that whenever she taught someone, they were unable to make them on their own. Some have even borrowed the cup she used for measuring the ingredients, the pot she used for cooking and even the spoon that was used for stirring. Of course, none of those helped. 

Under her guidance, we measured out the ingredients to closely match her measuring cup (she did not bring hers), and we timed the recipe. The first attempt was not successful. She tweaked the measurements and adjusted the cooking time and voilà! The second attempt was successful. 

The next day, we made the sweets on our own and they turned out perfect. Then we started experimenting. First, we added mint extract to the ingredients and we liked the result. Second, we tried increasing the cooking time by a couple of minutes to make the coconut sweets more crumbly, and that also worked out very well. We didn’t add mint extract to this version. We prefer to add cardamom instead.

To give the sweets more coconut flavour, we sprinkled finely shredded coconut on top of the sweets. These sweets allow many possibilities for experimentation. One thing we would like to try the next time we make them, is to partially dip them in unsweetened chocolate. The mint and chocolate will be great together and the sweets will look very pretty.


Cette recette est l’une des plus demandées et c’est une confiserie populaire en Somalie. A la différence de la recette précédente des bonbons à la noix de coco que nous avons publiée, celle-ci ressemble plus à un gâteau et il est plus facile de découper des formes différentes.

Quand nous nous sommes préparés pour faire cette recette, nous nous sommes souvenu d’un mariage auquel nous étions invité où ces bonbons étaient inclus dans un assortiment de sucreries qui étaient offert à chaque invité. Nous les avons beaucoup appréciés et nous avons la chance d’avoir pour amie la personne qui les a faits, Zeinab Ahmed. Elle est venue à la maison et a réalisé la recette pour nous.

Il y eut juste un petit problème. Elle est la seule à savoir faire cette confiserie et elle nous a confié que à chaque fois qu’elle l’apprenait à quelqu’un, personne ne pouvait refaire la recette par eux-mêmes. Certains ont même emprunté son verre doseur pour les ingrédients, la casserole qu’elle utilise pour la cuisson et même la cuillère qu’elle utilise pour touiller. Bien sûr, rien n’a aidé.

Sous sa direction, nous avons mesuré les ingrédients comme avec son verre doseur (qu’elle n’avait pas amené), et nous avons fait attention au temps de réalisation. La première tentative n’était pas une réussite. Elle a alors ajusté les mesures et le temps de cuisson et voilà! La deuxième tentative était un succès.

Le jour suivant, nous avons cuisiné la confiserie par nous mêmes et ils étaient parfaits. Puis nous avons commencé les expérimentations. D’abord, nous avons ajouté de l’extrait de menthe aux ingrédients et nous avons aimé le résultat. Ensuite, nous avons essayé d’allonger le temps de cuisson de quelques minutes pour rendre les bonbons à la noix de coco plus friables, et ça a bien marché. Nous n’avons pas ajouté d’extrait de menthe dans cette version. Nous préférons ajouter de la cardamome à la place.

Pour renforcer l’arôme de noix de coco, nous avons saupoudré de la noix de coco râpée très fin sur les bonbons. Ces bonbons permettent de nombreuses possibilités d’expérimentation. Ce que nous aimerions essayer la prochaine fois que nous les cuisinons, c’est de les couvrir partiellement de chocolat noir. La menthe et le chocolat vont très bien ensemble et les bonbons seront très jolis.

    hi i wanted to know how many cups of the coconut should we use. In the recipe it says 2/3 and the video says 2 1/3 cups. i tried with 2/3 cups of the coconut it looks like it was not enough of coconut, and it was sticky. thank you for your dedications

    • A&L
      April 19, 2012 | 7:59 pm

      Hi Sofia, we used 2/3 cups coconut. In the video also it’s the same we used 2 x 1/3 cups (two times a third cup) which is 2/3 cups. We tried increasing the coconut but it didn’t set or solidify. As for stickiness we believe that the heat you used was lower than what is required. You can either increase the heat or cook it for a longer time.

    I was reading one of the other comments of one of your readers. I also had the same issue with the coconut. I have an electric stove and I set to to medium. I used 2/3 cup of coconut and it did solidify. But the amount of sugar (2 cups) to coconut is really high thus it turned out like a sugar fudge. It wasn’t sticky at all it seems like when you bite it it just taste like a bar of pure sugar with flavor of coconut. So I don’t what to do next, maybe I will try to increase coconut (double it) and also decrease the sugar by a cup. I will definitely let you know how it turns out. Also I have made this before with “old recipe” I had -just using a can of condensed milk, and coconut. Then it bubbles and comes together and then pour in a pan voila it sets like bars. It’s slightly chewy -but depending how crunchy or crumbly you want it -you can cook it longer.

      This recipe is for Kashaato. Saying that it is too sugary is akin to saying Halwo is too sweet. This is the authentic and traditional way it is made. The other method that you described does not give you Kashaato, but it is similar to the Coconut Burfi we made. In order to cut the sweetness of the Kashaato, we added mint extract. We also sprinkled it with shredded coconut to accentuate the coconut flavour.

    I tried to adjust it and it was a total failure! oh my god. But I did how ever keep the original recipe. I stored them in jars and I hope my my brothers and sister will eat it. But to my taste I would prefer a bit more coconut and less sugar so I will go a head and make the coconut burfi for myself. Thank you for your quick reply!

      There are recipes that you can adjust and some that don’t allow any tampering. We knew that you would not have much success in adjusting the Kashaato. We believe the Coconut Sweets or the Coconut Burfi will be more to your liking.

      Waa caraf sida vanilla-da oo kale. Nacnaca ayaa lagu daraa, cabitaanna waa laga sameeyaa. Af-Carabi waxaa lagu yiraahdaa نعناع. Af-Ingiriisiga-na waa “mint.” Soomaaliya meento ayaa loo yiqiinay.
