Chancacas are a traditional Colombian coconut candy from Buenaventura, Colombia, a seaport city on the Pacific Ocean. They are made with panela (unrefined cane sugar) and coconut. Fresh coconut is preferable to dried shredded coconut, but either can be used. The chancacas are chewy. Zest of lime and cinnamon add flavor.[1]
