Bukayo is a native Filipino dessert delicacy which is made mainly with coconut strips and sugar. There are variants - moist and dry (also called bocarillo). The former is typically made into toppings and fillings for suman latik and inday-inday, among others, though I just love eating it right from the container. The latter is more of a hard candy type reminiscent of bandi, which takes a shape of its own and is more convenient to be eaten on the go.
Basically both share almost the same recipe with some more or less tweaks to make the other.

Here's a recipe to make Bukayo.

Now that's really bargain and I will surely be back for more!
