Crispy Chocolate Coconut Nests

Crispy Chocolate Coconut Nests created by Kzim4

Ever have those crunchy chocolate coconut candies from Godiva? These are WONDERFUL and sweet! Lovely addition to Christmas cookie trays and fun to make with children. Takes maybe 10 minutes from start to finish.

Ready In:
10mins
Yields:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) bag dark chocolate chips or (16 ounce) bag good quality sweetened chocolate
  • 1 (16 ounce) bag shredded coconut

directions

  • I've estimated the bag size but you want to have approximately equal amounts of each ingredient.
  • Spread the shredded coconut in a baking pan and toast in the oven at 400° until a shade darker than golden brown (maybe 5 minutes or so I think- I never time it, just go by the color really.) Melt chocolate chips in microwave, stirring occasionally until melted.
  • (Don't over cook these or the chocolate will burn and become permanently solid) Stir coconut and chocolate together until all coconut is covered.
  • Drop by small spoonfuls onto wax paper and refrigerate until solid.
  • --I don't like semisweet chocolate in this recipe.
  • Milk or dark chocolate tastes better in my opinion, but use whatever you like.

    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!
