Bocarillo refers to a Filipino coconut delicacy from Southern Leyte, one of the Provinces of the Philippines. Bocarillo is made from grated/shredded tender coconut meat mixed/cooked with sugar and natural fruit flavoring. Bocarillo is Leyte's version of the Bocayo/Bucayo, a local Filipino confectionery made out of grated coconut meat (Buco) and brown sugar (molasses). Bocarillo has became popular as "Pasalubong" or as gift items to loved ones elsewhere in the Philippines from Leyte Province. Bocarillo is now available in its original flavor and fruit flavors, such as Pineapple, Jackfruit and Kalamansi (local Philippine lime) I got a recipe of Bocarillo over the internet, but I still have to try making it: Bocarillo Servings and Ingredients 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 cups mature shredded mature coconut 1/2 cup Evaporated Milk 2 eggs, slightly beaten 1 tbsp. calamansi juice Instructions 1. Combine sugar and shredded coconut in a heavy saucepan. Cook stirring constantly over low heat until almost dry. 2. Stir in Evaporated Milk and slightly beaten eggs. 3. Cook until thick and stir in Kalamansi juice. Drop by teaspoonfuls on wilted banana leaves or wax paper. Cool until set
