Victoria, you're spot on. I used milk chocolate and sweetened coconut. My coconut also started to burn; I lowered the oven temperature and tossed it several times. I think the toastier, the better with the coconut, though - the crunch will last longer - so I'm going to try a 350 oven tonight and keep it in as long a possible. I melted chocolate in a bowl over simmering water - double-boiler style and added the coconut to the bowl. So easy, so delicious and everyone seems to love it.

Out of this world! Delicious and easy! I used milk chcolate and sweetened coconut. It would not taste good with unsweetened coconut. The oven temp. of 400 degrees almost burned the coconut in 5 minutes, so I would recommend decreasing the temperature to 375 degree and using a spatula to flip the coconut after 4 minutes for even cooking. Also, I melted the choc. chips on the stove top in a non-stick pan on the lowest heat and it worked perfectly, while stirring constantly. Yummy!!!

These were very good, and so easy to make! I just made sure to take the coconut out of the oven and move it around about every 2 mins. I also accidentally bought semi-sweet chocolate but decided to give it a go anyway - they were still very good but I can see why one would want to use milk chocolate instead. I will definitely make these again.

These are so easy to make--with great results! I used 12 oz. milk chocolate and 12 oz. sweetened coconut. Next time, I think that I'll use just a little more chocolate than coconut. I toasted the coconut on 350 for between 5-10 minutes, tossing it several times. Thanks for an easy and delicious recipe!

I used one 16 oz. bag of milk chocolate chips and 2 cups of sweetened, shredded coconut, and these were delicious! I also drizzled mine with just a bit of white chocolate for a decorative touch. These were so easy, even my 4 yo was able to help. I also took the suggestion to lower the oven temp to 375 and it worked perfectly. Thanks again for a great recipe!

Made this with white chocolate and used pretty chocolate molds. I think I over-toasted the coconut, but everyone loved them just the same! I'll be doing this one many times!

4* for taste, but the recipe should be more specific! I used unsweetened coconut...apparently (from above) it was supposed to be sweetened. The semi-sweet chocolate combo probably would have been better this way. My chocolate chips would not melt in the microwave until I added a touch of water - they just dried up.

Very easy, Very sweet, they kind of remind me of macaroons. Next time I think I will make it in a baking dish and try to cut them into squares. Thanks for the recipe.
