Pina Colada Bites

Sharing is caring!

If you like pina coladas…you will love these pina colada bites!

Well, I can’t guarantee it, but I definitely loved them.

Another bonus is they are easy to make and great for parties.

One thing that makes this recipe so easy is that I bought a store bought angel food cake. I recommend using a serrated knife to cut the cake. The slices come out perfectly clean.

I cut the angel food cake into small squares, about 1″ in size. I bought a fresh pineapple and cut the pineapple the same size.

The most time consuming part of this recipe is toasting the coconut. I find it easy to pop it in the oven at 325 for 5-10 minutes. It makes your kitchen smell like coconut, which I love.

Frosting is another thing I bought for these pina colada bites. You don’t need to use a lot of frosting, it’s more like a glue for the cake to get the coconut to stick.

Last up is the maraschino cherries. I ripped the stem off to give it a cleaner look.

I bought some cute little toothpicks to assemble the pina colada bites. First I put a maraschino cherry on, then I grabbed a piece of the angel food cake and added a little bit of toasted coconut and put that on the toothpick.

The last addition was the pineapple. I added that to the toothpick and my pina colada bite was assembled.

Give them a try and I hope you like them as much as I did!
